Virginia School Board Meeting Goes Off The Rails After New ‘Equity’ Policy Is Ruled Discriminatory (VIDEO)

The Loudoun County Virginia Schools Board is well-known to most Americans. Their controversial race theory and mask mandates have garnered national attention. But now, another Virginia school board just one county over is in the hot seat over an “equity” policy that a federal judge ruled discriminates against Asian students.

On Thursday night, the entire Fairfax County Virginia School Board fled their own meeting as Asian parents accused them of racism after they changed a magnet school’s admission process in the name of “equity” but which parents say was really intended to exclude Asians. 

A federal judge agreed, it turned out.

Because ‘Equity!’

In February, Judge Claude Hilton ruled that the equity based policy in Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) “disproportionately deprived” Asian students. The Judge also noted in his ruling that “the discussion of admissions changes was infected with talk of racial balancing from its inception.”

Thomas Jefferson School for Science and Technology was once the most highly ranked magnet school in Virginia. However, in its wisdom, the Fairfax County school board decided that the merit-based admissions process for the school lacked “equity.”

The math test used in the admissions process was scrapped for a new process which considers how “disadvantaged” a student is. Thomas Jefferson School must now provide remedial math for students.

Fairfax County Parent Understandably Indignant

On Thursday, the entire Fairfax County school board headed for the exit as a group of Asian parents shouted “racist.”

The outburst by the parents followed the federal judge’s ruling that its new admissions policy illegally discriminated against Asian students. Fairfax County’s school board decided instead to appeal the decision and return to merit-based admissions.

Asra Numani, one of the plaintiffs in this lawsuit, is Asra. She did not hold back at Thursday night’s meeting.

“For the last two years you have been trying to make us invisible, but a federal judge has ruled that in fact you are going to go down in history just like I told you you would, just like the school board in Brown vs. Board. You are the new face of racism.”

Nomani wasn’t done.

Even as a security guard started toward her she stated, “Your equity plan didn’t think about the Asians, did you. We were on the wrong side of brown for you.” The crowd, some of them immigrants began to yell “racist.” 

The board called for an interruption and then ran behind the stage.

After the fact, Nomani thanked Daily Wire’s Luke Rosiak for “being a witness”.

Students from Asian Countries Will Not Be Expelled

This is not the first time that Thomas Jefferson School for Science and Technology has tried to exclude Asian students. Breitbart News published documents in January showing how school board members knowingly tried to make Asian students more discriminatory.

Multiple text messages showed that members of the board were well aware of possible anti-Asian bias in new admissions policies. According to court records, the board also falsified numbers in an effort to score racial results. 

It is not new for any level of education to discriminate against Asian students. The Supreme Court heard an appeal in January concerning the race-based admissions policies of Harvard University and University of North Carolina.

The lawsuit argued that both schools have admissions policies that result in “race balancing,” and could potentially discriminate against Asian students  who may have higher college entrance test scores but are still rejected for racial quotas.

Both schools denied wrongdoing in relation to their admissions policies. It is anticipated that the Supreme Court will hear this case during its October term.
