                                      An Opportunity for AsAm Students
To Voice Their Views on Admissions

    The NY Times published an article today under the category of STUDENT OPINION

                Is the College Admissions Process Fair?

At the end of the article, it gives the invitation below:

    "Students 13 and older are invited to comment. All comments are 
      moderated by the Learning Network staff, but please keep in 
      mind that once your comment is accepted, it will be made public."

     If you have relatives who are students, please encourage them to air their
views.  Our younger generation is likely more eloquent and gutsy than us.

                           What this article is and is not about

     The article basically takes the following view:"The admissions process is a maddening mishmash of competing objectives, and an attempt to measure the unmeasurable: you. No, it isn't fair, and likely never will be, " stated by Eric Hoover.
     Note, however, the above statement notwithstanding, having the Asian Am. students forced to yield 140 SAT points to their white peers by elite colleges is DISCRIMINATION.  Discrimination is CERTAINLY UNFAIR

     80-20 EF is certain AsAm students can fight for themselves.  We just want to make our students aware that they have a wonderful opportunity to do so.  But Hurry! The window of opportunity will close soon, as the article will be withdrawn in a couple of days.

       Click here to reach the article.  At the end of the article, click on a rectangle placed to the right of the social media symbols to access the comment box.  There is only 1 comment as of now.  We look to our youth to speak out.
