|Parents of an 11-year-old Indian American denied admission to a New York public school for gifted children are protesting the school district's racial quota rules that locked her out. |
The school reserves 60 percent of its seats for white students and 40 percent for minorities. As a result white students need a score of 77 on New York's standardized test to get into the school, against a score of 84.4 required by minorities. Rau scored 79.
