The right way to boost diversity at TJ
Regarding Jay Mathews's Nov. 8 Metro column, "Diversity: A tough test for Jefferson":
Mr. Mathews seems to believe that Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology should lower its standards to admit underqualified students, without considering what happens to those students when they cannot keep up.
To me, lowering standards is counterproductive to a student's education. It would be more beneficial to students, and to Thomas Jefferson High, to raise the bar and demand equal education of all students from the areas feeding into TJ.
If the students were equally educated, there would be more diversity at Thomas Jefferson.
