School District Near DC Under Investigation Amid Allegations of Discriminating Against Asians

Though Montgomery County Public Schools insists its new approach to admissions is colorblind, there is considerable evidence that the effort was in reality an attempt at “race norming,” which is unfair and illegal. (Photo: Natalia Ganelin/Getty Images)
 

Is a public school system in a leafy county straddling the Capital Beltway discriminating against Asian Americans? The feds next door are investigating in a case with national implications, and with good reason: The type of racial balancing that Montgomery County Public Schools is using may well be illegal.

No one questions that the changes MCPS put into effect in 2016 have led to a sharp decline in Asian American admissions to a middle school magnet program. In 2016-2017 the drop was 23%; the following year it was 20%. The numbers for whites, Hispanics, and blacks went up.

That in itself should satisfy those who always insist that policies that have a disparate impact on members of an identity group are suspect per se, and need to be reassessed.
