"New York State's method of awarding merit scholarships to high school students on the basis of their scores on Scholastic Aptitude Tests discriminates against girls, a Federal judge in Manhattan ruled yesterday. He ordered the state to change its selection process.
In a preliminary ruling, Federal Judge John M. Walker said the state's exclusive use of S.A.T. scores to award Empire and Regents Scholarships violated the equal protection clause of the Federal Constitution.
The lawsuit was filed last October by two organizations, the Girls Clubs of America and the National Organization for Women, and by 10 New York high school girls.
It challenged the State Education Department's plan to revert to using only the S.A.T. to determine eligibility for the state scholarships. For 10 years until last year, that was the sole criterion in New York."
There you have it, there's the National Organization for Women veering its ugly head to make sure women and girls have "more equality" than men and boys.
