New SAT adversity score aims to enable race-based college admissions
5-23-19, Writing for Law & Liberty, attorney Mark Pulliam argues that the new SAT adversity score is designed as a way for college admissions officials to continue to use race-based preferences.The rating takes into account the crime rate, poverty levels, and other factors deemed to represent the degree of privilege or “adversity” in the students’ respective communities, although the College Board declines to reveal what data it uses and how it weighs the factors. Reports show, “Other elements of the adversity index include housing values, family median income, whether a student is a child of a single parent, or speaks English as a second language.” However the data is derived or weighed, lumping people together based on their zip code resembles nothing so much as the now-banned practice of banks and other financial institutions which rejected loan applicants based solely on where they lived. It was called “redlining,” and civil rights advocates condemned it as discrimination.
