School board member says ‘anti-Asian feel’ to new admission policy of country’s top high school

  • Fairfax County school board member Abrar Omeish is under fire after a text message to another board member about the district’s admissions policy was published by an outside organization.
  • Based on the texts, Omeish seems to be admitting that the district’s race-based admissions is “anti Asian.”
  • Emails exchanged between the school board members and a district official will also be used in a court case against the Fairfax County School Board.

Abrar Omeish, a Fairfax County school board member, wrote in a text message to another board member that the district’s admissions policy is discriminatory towards Asians.

“I mean there has been an anti asian feel underlying some of this, hate to say it lol,” Omeish texted school board member Stella Pekarsky, according to Parents Defending Education.
