The most just system would be to have admissions based solely on merit- not your parents wealth or your race.

I never understood how McNair's position was legal. SCOTUS ruled in Bahke case that quotes were unconstitutional race based discrimination. Moreover, in practice, it was totally abused. Poor Asians (for McNair meant Arabs, Persians, Turks, Indians, Chinse, Filipinos etc). Egyptian Arabs and others claimed to be African - American, lol.

Anyway, the Board of Ed has never really liked McNair and has viewed it as elitist. It has insisted on politically motivated hires. The founding teachers have all left and the new crew is not sustaining excellence. The Humanities and languages, in particular, are inadequate. The French and Spanish departments are not impressive. Chinese is dominated by Chinese kids. Nothing else is offered! No German, Russian, no ancient Greek or Latin!!!! Beginning about six years ago, the history and literature courses became hopelessly woke.

Socially, the administration has lost control of the student body where drugs are rampant. Students vape in the bathrooms. They need Mrs. Barone to come back and straighten out the place.

Jersey City students have mixed feelings about recently announced plans that would take effect in 2026 to overhaul the admissions process for its top-two ranked high schools: McNair Academic and Infinity Institute.
