                                   Why beat around the bush?

   80-20 EF's President S. B. Woo sent a letter, certified and return receipt requested, to the presidents and Chairpersons of the Board of the 8 Ivy League colleges.  He asked them to introduce remedies to prevent discrimination against AsAm students in their admissions process, and requested a response.  Here is an example.

                  SALUTING AsAm faculty & staff working for 
                             Ivy colleges who SPOKE UP!

       They include, but not limited to, 

1.  Jeannie Suk Gersen, a professor at Harvard Law School, who wrote the the New Yorker article: "The Uncomfortable Truth About Affirmative Action and Asian-Ams" , on 8/17/2017.

2. The many AsAm professors and staff who work for Ivy colleges and who donated most generously to EF's SELF project, including one Princeton prof. who donated $1000/yr for 5 yrs. immediately after EF's "UGLY facts on discrimination against AsAm youth" was published on Aug 1.

3.  EF Board members, who are associated with Ivy colleges:

     a) Alice Huang, retired professor from Harvard Medical School,
     b) S. B. Woo, Visiting Fellow, Kennedy School, Harvard university (1989),
