In accordance with his previous maniacal, leftist political ramblings (admiration for Saul Alinsky and condemnation of the United States Constitution), fellow traveler Haas uses the Court’s solidly constitutional decision to promote his Division’s own racial Ponzi scheme, wherein the soft bigotry of low expectations reigns supreme.
Haas and company’s institutionally racist policies, dumbed down grading ploy, and lax academic disciplinary procedures have led to embarrassingly poor performance for a Division that previously excelled.
Like his incapacitated mentor-from-a-far, Joe Biden, Superintendent Haas’s deficient attempt to cash-in (virtue signal) on a national political battle has foundered miserably, not unlike many of the students he oversees in ACPS.

Dear School Community Members:
Yesterday’s decision by the U.S. Supreme Court to override previous court decisions that upheld the use of affirmative action in achieving equity and diversity in university admissions does not have a direct impact on our school division enrollment. It does, however, conflict with a core value.
Our strategic plan makes clear what our responsibility is to all of those who live in our community and attend our schools. That responsibility is to work together as a team to end the predictive value of race, class, gender, and special capacities in ensuring that every student succeeds. To that end, one of our core values is equity, which demands from us, as a school community, that we provide every student with the level of support necessary to thrive.
Yesterday’s decision by the Supreme Court does not change the strength or the integrity of our commitment to this outcome. It will not alter the faithfulness of our determination, also expressed in our strategic plan, to ensure the academic and social-emotional development of all students through the elimination of gaps in opportunity, access and achievement.
We are a community comprised of families and students from more than 95 countries, enriched by cultures and traditions that broaden our knowledge and appreciation of excellence beyond our own life experiences. Making it possible for each of us to fulfill our highest potential makes it possible for our community and our nation to fulfill its highest potential.
The ideals of inclusion and equal opportunity, and actions to remove the barriers that deny these ideals, should and must unite us all.
Dr. Matthew Haas, Superintendent
