SAT goes full 'Muh Equality'
If wars for jews weren't enough, starting off with the axiom "all races are equal" is sufficient to induce Clown World. Since equality is indelible, all deductions of race based IQ differences must be unsound, and owning to external pressures, such as the usual nonsense we hear about privilege. In a vain attempt to quantify the unmeasurable, the 2019 term with added pseudo-scientific flavor is 'Adversity Index'.
The College Board plans to assign an adversity score to every student who takes the SAT to try to capture their social and economic background, jumping into the debate raging over race and class in college admissions.
This new number, called an adversity score by college admissions officers, is calculated using 15 factors including the crime rate and poverty levels from the student’s high school and neighborhood. Students won’t be told the scores, but colleges will see the numbers when reviewing their applications.
James Conroy, director of college counseling at New Trier High School, which serves several affluent and mostly white communities north of Chicago, said the focus on diversity by elite colleges is already high and the adversity score would magnify that.
“My emails are inundated with admissions officers who want to talk to our diversity kids,” Mr. Conroy said. “Do I feel minority students have been discriminated against? Yes, I do. But I see the reversal of it happening right now.”
Now sit back and view the pilpul, as they try to tell you this isn't about race, when in fact, the racial differences in SAT scores are the driving force for these 'changes'. Even in the quotes above, you see the demand for changes so as to increase diversity.
The adversity score, by contrast, doesn’t take into account race and is superior because it is steeped in more research, said Connie Betterton, vice president for higher education access and strategy at the College Board.
“Since it is identifying strengths in students, it’s showing this resourcefulness that the test alone cannot measure,” Mr. Coleman, the College Board CEO, said. “These students do well, they succeed in college.”
