There is so much wrong with this story, I'm not sure where to begin. Eduardo V. Genao a principle of a magnet school in Hartford has been accused of changing the racial designations of at least six biracial students to conform with state guidelines. Apparently there are not enough white students at his Sport & Medical Sciences Academy so he created some by changing the races on student records, without the parent's consent. An anonymous letter accused Genao of asking students directly if he could make the change:
"Mr. Genao called our children into his office one at a time and spoke to each of them of how the school will get `millions of dollars' if the child would just let him change their ethnic background in the computer from minority to white," said the letter, which was sent to Mayor Eddie A. Perez, the city school board and state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal. "He did not call the parents to get permission. He thought he could just change these facts with the permission of 14 and 15 year old children."
What the hell was he thinking? That 14 and 15 year olds are particularly apt at keeping racial skulldudgery on the Q.T.?
