Talking Points

The Senate Public Education Subcommittee voted to NOT report this bill to the Senate Education and Health Committee but Chap Petersen pushed for the Senate Education and Health committee to reconsider the bill and they "reported" it.

The subcommittee was wise in recommending this bill NOT be reported because it would reinstate scores on the highly biased standardized test as a criterion for admissions evaluation.

It is fiction that increasing access for underprivileged groups is discrimination against more advantaged students. Standardized tests are not 'objective' measures of merit and students' talents and abilities are not fixed.

This bill would serve to reinforce inequities in Virginia Governor's schools rather than work to eliminate them.
