“OK – I have two items. Stuyvesant (and Bronx Science) are not magnet schools. The purpose of magnet schools is to promote racial integration. The purpose of Stuyvesant is to promote the study of math and science at the highest levels (same for Bronx Science). By definition and law, they are specialized high schools open to all who can pass the admissions test. Also, when one observes that Stuyvesant and Bronx Science are rated as 9th and 10th in New York State by U.S. News, one can assume that there is something wrong with the ranking system. Thus, between these two high schools they have more graduates winning Nobel prizes than most universities. The same is true for the number of Academy Awards their graduates have won. This does not even get into the number of graduates whose names are well known in the science, academic, government, mathematics, business, law, medical, and even military sectors. No other high schools in the country can match their individual record of accomplishment and especially not their combined accomplishments.” – Richard A. Smith ·
