This is the standard apparently:

"But the test was found to fail minority teaching candidates at a higher rate than white candidates. According to Friday’s decision, written by Judge Kimba M. Wood of Federal District Court in Manhattan, the pass rate for African-American and Latino candidates was between 54 percent and 75 percent of the pass rate for white candidates. Once it was established that minority applicants were failing at a disproportionately high rate, the burden shifted to education officials to prove that the skills being tested were necessary to do the job; otherwise, the test would be ruled discriminatory."

And people wonder why public education in the US is falling behind.

With this ruling, the LAST-2 meets the same fate of the LAST-1, an earlier
version of the test, given from 1993 to 2004, that was also found to be
discriminatory. …

Neither version of the exams is still in use in New York. Instead the state
administers a new test called the Academic Literacy Skills Test, or the ALST,
along with a slate of other assessments. The fate of the ALST, however, was
recently called into question as well. This spring, Judge Wood began questioning
whether that test, too, was racially discriminatory. A hearing is scheduled on
the issue for later this month.
Tests measuring real congnitive skills, that do not show differing outcomes by racial group, simply do not exist.

Yeah, I'm thinking the third test will be there will be no tests.

Kimba Wood of course.

From the diseased mind of a liberal.

So is the judge saying minorities are less intelligent than whites?

So what does he suggest ;a rating those races on a slipping scale. That would also be biased. The lowering of standards can be seen in school ranking results in the world. Seems stupid but equal is goal of progressives;not upwards advance of those races.

All whites, must give all blacks, some of their intelligence. If you don't, they will take it.




Sound familiar?

Reading, writing and math, yes, so biased. Maybe Kimba should have paid more attention in school herself.

Dumbing down the standards. It is what they do.

No wonder the traditional public school system is failing its mission.

Thanks, Dems!
