California’s Kennedy High School recently killed off a controversial program of academic performance segregation. The program was intended to offer incentives and rewards to students scoring above and significantly above baseline test standards. These students were given gold and platinum cards and were allowed to use special fast-access lines in places like the cafeteria. Meanwhile, all the regular and under-achieving students were given white cards and used slower lines, etc. Naturally, the not-haves were complaining about being called out, identified and segregated.
