Why This New Jersey School District Is ASHAMED Of Its Students' Success

David Aderhold, superintendent of the West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District in New Jersey, is ashamed that the schools under his leadership have become, as he described, a "perpetual achievement machine."

According to the New York Post, the school district regularly graduates top-tier students. Why is this a problem?

Because it's "unfair."

The district is 65 percent Asian, and culturally, Asian-American parents are thought to set high standards of academic achievement for their kids and make sure they do their homework. A study by the University of Michigan and City University of New York confirms that this involvement leads to higher student performance.

But some people see this as giving Asian students an unfair advantage because not every kid has parents who are so involved in their education. And to combat the success of these "privileged" children, Aderhold got rid of accelerated 4th and 5th grade math courses where Asian children dominate attendance — up to 90% — to help lower the "unbalanced" achievement level of his district.

Similarly, Mayor Bill de Blasio, along with the NAACP, is seeking to diminish the role exams play in allowing students in New York City to gain admission to the city's top selective high schools. The New York Post writer believes this is aimed at reducing the number of Asian-American students who make it into these choice institutions.

Because, after all, leveling outcomes and punishing achievement in America is the best way to prepare students to compete in a global economy. Right?
