Black, Hispanic New Yorkers Get $1.8B Settlement From NYC for Failing Teaching Aptitude Test

The aptitude test was deemed racially "biased" because too many white people passed.

From New York Post, "Black, Hispanic NYers who failed teacherís test strike $1.8B in NYC settlement":
Failing the New York State teachers' exam really paid off -- especially for a Queens man who learned this month he's getting a $2 million windfall over it.

Roughly 5,200 black and Hispanic ex-Big Apple teachers and once-aspiring educators are expected to collect more than $1.8 billion in judgments after the city stopped fighting a nearly three-decade federal discrimination lawsuit that found a certification exam was biased.

It's the largest legal payout in city history.

[...] Court rulings found the exam violated civil-rights laws, allowing far more white candidates to pass.

[...] Arthur Goldstein, a recently retired veteran teacher at Francis Lewis High School in Queens, said the former test wasn't a good indicator of how well candidates would perform in the classroom and the city would've been better off resolving the issue decades ago by hiring many of those who sued.
"Herman Grim, 64, of Queens, on July 5 was awarded the biggest judgment to date -- a jaw-dropping $2,055,383," the NY Post reported.

This settlement is one of many that's effectively reparations through the backdoor.
