Elite School Admission Wars

Asian Americans were the only racial group to see their numbers decrease under the new admissions system, to 54 percent from 73 percent.

The percentage of Black students increased to 7 percent from no more than 2 percent. Hispanic students increased to 11 percent from 3 percent. White students increased to 22 percent from 18 percent.

If they take the top 1.5% of every feeder school that seems like a fair way to do it.  Public schools are supposed to be available to everybody, not just those that can afford coaching on standardized tests.
