Stuyvesant class of ’17, by the numbers

On Twitter via John Podhoretz, I see that Kay Hymovitz points to the demographic breakdown of the entering freshman class at Stuyvesant High School. Stuyvesant is one of New York’s specialized public high schools where entrance is determined solely by Specialized High School Admission Test scores:

—Stuyvesant offered admission to 9 black students; 24 Latino students; 177 white students; and 620 students who identify as Asian.

Hymowitz just says “wow,” which seems like a good start, but I hope she will elaborate.

Hymovitz is a fellow at the Manhattan Institute and the coauthor of Knot Yet: The Benefits and Costs of Delayed Marriage in America (the link is to a press release), a new report from the National Marriage Project, the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy and the Relate Institute, which is excerpted here in this weekend’s Wall Street Journal.
