Berkeley Science Labs Compromise?

A controversial proposal to slash science labs at Berkeley High School that serve mostly white students in order to redirect resources to struggling black and Latino youth grabbed national headlines and spurred allegations of reverse racism. But a new compromise proposal negotiated by Berkeley’s school Superintendent William Huyett may help ease some of the anger generated by the original plan. The deal would still allow the high school to free up funds to address its huge racial achievement gap, while leaving in place more science lab instruction than originally proposed.
