在各群疯抢红包时有没有想过我们能给孩子什么样的礼物?当高中生陷于日益激烈的升学压力,除了抱怨虎妈狼爸,有没有想过究竟是什么造成恶性竞争?

请仔细读这篇朋友大作“常春藤录取有多腐败”。读过感叹之余,想了解我们能做什么吗?新州和长岛家长有福气了!请来听Mr. Blum (the one behind the Harvard lawsuit) 讲座, 10am Saturday 2/28, at the Livingston Huaxia Chinese School, 11 Broadlawn Dr., Livingston, NJ 07039. 


长岛周五2/27 晚八点讲座信息

带学生们来见见这样一位人物吧。How many times in our life time do we get this opportunity? Mr. Blum是很少的几个能把诉讼进行到最高法院阶段的人,这将是你能给孩子们的一份礼物。

诉讼文件

Are you a qualified candidate for future lawsuits?

Is Harvard unfair to Asian Americans?

朋友说“这个诉讼不管结果如何, 过程本身就是我们华人学习和成长的契机。尤其是对下一代,带动他们的自我意识、权利的觉醒。”

最近的几件事使我们真切意识到华人迫切需要有责任感有能力的律师,投入到civil rights 这一艰巨又回报低的行业中。我们从现在就多带孩子了解社会现实,争取下一代出Supreme Court justices,提高华人地位!

在我们每人都是媒体的微信时代,请朋友们转发讲座信息,即使您不在NJ,您同学群,老乡群,教育群等等也会有NJ居民。Blum也许还会去其他州讲座,提高意识,多接触英文媒体,也是参与社会的一部分。


有人说既然Blum在诉讼,我们还花精力做什么?Here is my short answer: If you have no good reason, how about just come and learn English? How many times in our lifetime will we hear someone whose engagement has influenced the future of college admissions? Where is our intellectual curiosity? Where is the will to step out of one's comfort zone and engage in a conversation w someone (instead of grabbing red envelops on wechat,no offense)? How about taking our high schoolers out of the pile of HW so they can be inspired? Don't we dream that our kids can one day become future Supreme Court justices? This is not just about college admissions, this is not just about us. Give ourselves the chance. Give our children the gift.
