In Long Beach we have open enrollment for all high schools and students apply to various small learning communities. When too many applicants apply for a program the district selects solely based on GPA/CST scores even for programs that are not focused on high academics (i.e. community service, arts based, etc.). This seems unfair and puts all the top kids in certain popular programs, leaving the other programs known for "stupid" kids. Is there any law that prevents this type of selection process?
