A bombshell of a story has surfaced, implicating several prominent figures in a pay-to-play college scandal. If you doubted at all, the legitimacy of SAT scores, grades, and entrance exams, this sure seals the deal….
Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin, a famous fashion designer, and a bunch of other snobby elites paid a “life coach” to help their kids cheat on entry tests and buy athletic honors in order to ensure their kids made the cut.
I’d like to say I’m surprised, but I’m not… we’ve all seen it. College kids with no real work experience continually get hired in management positions over people who’ve been actually doing the job for years. They use their crap Arts degree in fields they aren’t even working in. Somehow they’re better than the rest of us because they were fortunate enough to be able to go to school and get their over-priced degree. A degree that guarantees their social standing for life….
A man named William Rick Singer founded Key Worldwide Foundation, otherwise known as The Key. The organization ensured those who paid got glowing test scores, and bribed coaches to accept the kids in the school’s athletic programs, even though they had no skills.
This goes a bit hand-in-hand with the report card/transcript issues I’ve talked about before…your grades dictate your pay now. It used to be a diploma was enough. Now employers value your worth based on your GPA as well…how fair is this to a student who actually has to work their way through college?
Everyone knows the amount of time that has to be spent on homework is daunting…people who are actually working while they attend college have a major disadvantage. So while the elite get to go to a college they have not even earned the right to attend, skating by on cheating, getting excellent grades because they can afford to PAY FOR THEM, the average Joe gets stiffed once again.
We are led to believe if we get a good education, we can get somewhere in life. Even this system is rigged…even after graduation, the poor people are penalized even more, because they didn’t get straight As…interesting isn’t it.
Outspent by the wealthy, and robbed of opportunities they otherwise should be able to attain. In a perfect world, where all their time could be spent studying, I’m sure the poor would come out on top. The elite just won’t let them.
**update: as suspected, several employees for The Key took tests and went to class for these kids… i figured if they were paying upwards of 500K a piece, they were getting a bit more than admission….
