What would be really awesome would be for colleges to have the same admission
requirements for everybody. Can you imagine what would happen if the athletics
programs had to recruit players that had to have the same ACT/SAT scores as
everybody else?But that brings up another issue. If the ACT/SAT
tests are meant to show college readiness why are colleges relaxing that
standard for athletics? If a football player who squeaked out a 20 on the ACT
can do well in college, why are colleges turning people away that have a 25 but
no athletic ability?Isn't the next scandal going to be the
lower standards for athletes?
Excuse me, its Morici who took the cheap shots, not another usual suspect.
Wow!Mr Hancock wasted no time conflating the scandals in the college
admission system with "liberals" and Democrats. And taxes. I am
surprised "Benghazi!" was not alluded to as well.Mr Hancock,
these illegal acts have nothing to do with your biased critiques of Democratic
policies and ideals. They were/are crimes. Period. Nothing more. I imagine the Hancock fans will pat themselves on the back and congratulate
the opinion piece as a truly great analytic synopsis of what might be wrong with
university admission processes. And love to extreme the extraneous political
diatribe.How sad and how predictable that so-called Conservative
thinkers take pot shots to "prove" the validity of their outlook. It
only shows the vacuity of their case.
Re Impartial7Donating to a school to gain admittance is not illegal.
This is about donating to a school admittance person who then pocketed the
money for themselves. Or someone was paid to help the prospective student chest
on a test.
"Instead the Democrats want to tax the wealthy, and politically liberal
economists, advocating the “new monetary theory,” want to simply
print money."Really? Trump's tax cuts for the wealthy and
corporations just added 1.5 Trillion to our debt. Who wants to print money? Plus
Morici is being hypocritical. How is "donating" to a school to get your
kid favorable status any different than "donating" to a politician to
get your company preferential laws passed? Citizens United and GOP "pay to
play" are the underlying cause of this college scandal.
