SAT exam to give students ’adversity score’ in bid to level playing field

A new ’adversity score’ assigned by the College Board on the SAT exam will reportedly reflect students’ family income, environment and educational differences in an effort to level the playing field. 50 schools used the new indicator as part of a beta test last year and the College Board, a New York-based non-profit, plans to bring more than 150 schools into the fold this fall.

From the Washington Post: "Most problematic was who finished and who did not: Basically, wealthy students graduated,  and low-income students did not. Children from families earning more than $90,000 have a 1-in-2 chance of getting a bachelor’s degree by 24. That falls to a 1 in 17 chance for families earning under $35,000." https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/grade-point/wp/2018/06/08/why-do-so-many-students-drop-out-of-college-and-what-can-be-done-about-it/?noredirect=on They are not even trying to hide the corruption within the higher education system. The people behind this "Adversity Score" know this will encourage more people that will never finish enroll in college. Most of these people will not realize they fell victim to a corrupt system, for all they will care about is that they are Debt Slaves with $50K-$200k in student loans. What happens when the next group of shysters, sorry I mean people, walk up offering "Student Loan Forgiveness" and "Free College" in exchange for Debt Slave's vote?
