I'm just about ready to propose Robby's Law: Institutions of higher education that receive federal funding must consider academic achievement—and no other factor—as a criteria for admittance.
My response to the college cheating scandal / bribery story: Put the entire college admissions system, as well as all college sports, on a rocket and SHOOT IT INTO THE SUN. Defund defund defund
The cheating scandal should have taxpayers asking whether it's right to subsidize the campus party lifestyles of celebrity scions who fake water polo careers.
"It's because college is a joke, and it's easy enough for an academically disinclined grifter—an Olivia Jade, if you will—to get by studying nonsense subjects. They're paying for the experience and the diploma, not the actual education."
If higher education is really just about celebrity scions pretending to play water polo in order to gain admittance to an exclusive partying club, maybe it's long past time to hit the defund button.
Great stuff here from -- though he didn't really need to include the word "admissions" in the headline
After the #collegeadmissionscandal, , Novak '17, says its time for #colleges and #universities to prioritize academics and for taxpayers to start questioning federal subsidies.
