    It's not in the Daily Mail article. If it's in the paywalled Australian article, perhaps you could quote the relevant passage.

    ''Boston Public Schools just canceled advanced classes for high-performing students because too many of the kids who qualified were white.''

    Hmm..unusual school I must say...where were the kids of Indian/Chinese origin (usually the highest performing ones )....but anyway, is it a legit reason to cancel the classes?

    Fake news!

    What's True
    In 2021, testing for enrollment into the Advanced Work Classes was suspended for one year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. School administrators also expressed concerns over racial inequities in the program, including the enrollment of majority white and Asian students.

    What's False
    However, the program itself was not suspended. Classes for currently enrolled students were continuing. The superintendent clarified that testing was suspended not because of racial inequities, but because the pandemic made it impossible to administer the test.
