FAA largely scraps merit-based testing for air traffic controllers
PLF friend Hans Bader reports on some awfully disturbing news out of the Federal Aviation Administration. It seems the FAA has scrapped merit-based testing for air traffic controllers in lieu of diversity-based screening.
For one FAA manager feeling the pressure to promote diversity, even a dumbed-down test apparently wasn’t enough: to maximize racial diversity and ensure that almost everyone would pass, she allegedly handed out the answers in advance to make sure that no one failed. One applicant says she was given prior access to the BQ test, including the preferred answers, by a Front Line Manager at the FAA’s New York Center.
