They already have an obvious advantage coming from "upper middle class Whitesville", with involved parents that love them and have pushed education and helped them from early on.

So, I think the thought is, that this new scoring would try to help level the playing field, for the kids that didn't/don't have that.

Sounds like a good idea, to me. shrug


So natural advantage is now a problem?

And you think people coming from adverse environments don't have "involved parents that love them and have pushed education and helped them from early on"?

That's kinda bigoted.

Should we start doing IQ tests in attempt to "level the playing field" as well as high IQ individuals are obviously advantaged?

Why is that funny?

SAT is a measurement of reading, writing , and math proficiency for college entrance. Nothing more.

High IQ isn't fair, just like being born into a low-crime stable environment isn't fair.

More like an unfair advantage.

We need to level the playing field.

Right?

"Furthermore, the SAT is largely a measure of general intelligence. Scores on the SAT correlate very highly with scores on standardized tests of intelligence, and like IQ scores, are stable across time and not easily increased through training, coaching or practice. SAT preparation courses appear to work, but the gains are small — on average, no more than about 20 points per section."

With all the resources at their disposal, there's absolutely no excuse to get below a 1300 (on 1600 scale) on the SAT.

If you have unlimited access to tutors, prep courses, study guides, and you STILL get an 1150, should you really be going somewhere even as prestigious as ASU?

Who has any of that stuff?

Your soon-to-be college kids are the exact ones who will be affected negatively by this

Wow. Pure bigotry

And where you live is 100% upper class when based on any scale, even within California.

Yeah, no one is saying that because it illustrates how insane it is to attempt equity as opposed to equal opportunity.

The only fair way to do anything since life is unfair is pure meritocracy

This is 100% about equal opportunity. Try to ignore your feelings for a moment.

I’m not sure why rice or anyone else would entertain your offensive ideas and presentation. Rice’s honesty about his good fortune in life is refreshing and sincere.

It is the absolute opposite of equal opportunity.

It is purposefully denying equal access to certain people because of their demographics

He knows his kids will be negatively effected and he accepts it.

Farmers in Missouri are saying that they know they’ll be negatively effected by the trade war/tariff war with China, but they accept it. They’ve been told to trust trump to level the playing field. Maybe rice is like a missouri farmer.
