Regarding George F. Will’s May 30 op-ed, “Anti-Asian racism disguises itself as ‘diversity’ ”:

We live in one of the wealthiest regions in the world, yet we struggle against scarce resources of our own choosing. What is wrong with this picture? It’s time to build as many Thomas Jefferson High Schools for Science and Technology as it takes to clear the waiting list and satisfy the demand for top-notch science and technology education. What are we waiting for?
