“eliminate racial disparities in honors enrollment”
This is a perfect example of what ‘equity’ does. It doesn’t lift people up. It cuts others down.

Patrick Henry High School cuts honors courses in the name of ‘equity’
San Diego’s largest high school, Patrick Henry High School, has cut some honors courses without informing the student’s parents.
As expected, parents are outraged and worries the lack of honors courses will hurt students chances of getting accepted to prestigious universities.
The principal, Michelle Irwin, claims she made the decision in the name of “equity.” Irwin also said cutting the honors courses would remove the stigma from non-honors classes and “eliminate racial disparities in honors enrollment.”
In an email thread obtained by KUSI News, Irwin told concerned parents the entire district has been embracing and promoting “inclusive environments.”
KUSI reached out to Irwin for comment on her decision, but we have not heard back.
KUSI News obtained an email thread between a concerned parent of a Patrick Henry student, Principal Michelle Irwin, and Erin Richardson, Superintendent of Area 6 High Schools for the San Diego Unified School District.
