Assembly-member Ron T. Kim seats on the Democrat Senate’s Education Committee. He’s a proponent of keeping the SHSAT exam as the SOLE measure of merit for access to Specialized High Schools.
Response to 2018 SHSAT Results
After lobbying to kill the 2018 SHSAT reform bill, Assembly-member Kim had nothing to say about the poor diversity in offers. Only 7 Black students got offers to Stuyvesant high school due to the exam.
Mr. Kim did have time to joke about the exam though
It’s clear Assembly-member Kim was never interested in dialog. Nor has he been interested in issues with using 114 multiple-choice questions as the ONLY admissions criteria to public schools.
