I’m late to the party, but it looks like we are doing the affirmative action debate again in Virginia. Yuck. Ground zero is the prestigious Thomas Jefferson School of Science and Technology (TJSST) in Fairfax County. A column by George Will indicates the story is going national. Once again, in the guise of a defense of merit, we have a renewed attack on policies aimed at addressing historic racial oppression. This time the prizes are coveted admissions to TJSST.
