New York high school principal said to exclude Catholic-school applicants
March 31, 2017
The principal of a New York high school has been accused of deliberately excluding students from Catholic schools from consideration for admission.
Principal Khurshid Abdul-Mutakabbir of Maspeth High School said that a “clerical error” caused the elimination of parochial-school students from a list of applicants. But he reportedly told a local resident that parochial-school applicants are “a problem” because they often choose not to attend Maspeth High School. The school has admitted 370 students for next year’s entering class; all of them come from public schools.
