Fallout from college admissions scandal
worsening for accused parents, institutions

Los Angeles Times, by Richard Winton & Hannah Fry

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/16/2019 12:59:50 PM

The college admissions cheating scandal that was revealed this week is shaping up to have long-term ramifications for both the parents accused in the scheme and the large world of getting into college. Some of the parents who are accused of cheating to get their children into elite schools are facing civil lawsuits in addition to federal criminal charges. Meanwhile, there is talk in Congress of new laws aimed at cracking down, and the Department of Education is also reviewing the case. Several of the colleges involved have launched their own probes. The sweeping criminal investigation, which came to light earlier

So the congressional hypocrites are thinking about a law to end favoritism for the rich and famous. How about doing away with all the exemptions that favor congress. Tell us how many congressional lmembers exempted their children for service.

As usual the solution to a problem in this case cheating by parents so their kids can get into elite schools for communist indoctrination, is more government rule and laws.

Horror of horrors the Department of Ignorance is "looking" into it. What business is it of a federal department, which most people are in favor of abolishing, getting involved in this crime?

Send the all of the elite parents and administrators to prison, kick their spoiled brats out of the colleges, and that will deter this sort of BS in the future.

Every college should be obligated to use 50 to 75 percent of their endowment funds to fund student loan programs for their students. Maybe even more, since their all so focused on education /sarc

Harvard´s is worth something like 1.3 million per student,
Princeton´s is worth around 1.6 million per student.

If the university wants their money returned to them, they can make sure that they graduate students that can, and want to pay it back.

Once this money is focused on something productive, we will see huge changes in admissions, faculty and the degrees that are granted.

Right now, this money creates wealth for the money managers who handle it.

What are they gonna do, admit they were already doing the "nod, nod, wink, wink"? This was likely known at multiple levels at these institutions and others that haven´t been caught. Buying admission has probably been going on since colleges were first started and has trickled down to kindergarten at this point.

These people are cheats and creeps. But, honestly, the FBI is on the case and having million dollar bail????
Meanwhile, the Congress is free, after condemning millions of families to ruinous debt with college loans (enforced by the US Government). Hillary roams free after the big fix.
So, what gives? I will tell you. A totally corrupt FBI trying to change the subject, that´s what!!

The real scandal is the Marxist indoctrination that these ´elite´ colleges relentlessly cram into their students´ heads. That plus worthless degrees in social justice majors and grade inflation. I would never hire someone who majored in gender studies or some other laughable ´discipline´. You know immediately that the graduate is clueless about the real world.

These rich parents broke the law and should be punished. But the extent of the crying and wailing about this "scandal" is ridiculous!!!!!

If I hear one more person complain about how unfair this was to students that were more qualified and didn´t get accepted, I am going to puke!!!!!

At most, this is a few hundred rich kids whose parents were lazy and stupid, and did this illegal stuff to get their kids in to college.

But there are tens of thousands (if not more) of unqualified minority kids that are accepted to better colleges every year in the name of "affirmative action". For every one of them, a more qualified student (with better grades, better test scores, and a much better resume) is denied admissions!!!!

And I won´t even get into the thousands of athletes with really bad grades and terrible test scores that are admitted because they can run fast or throw a ball in a hoop consistently. But at least they do pay back a little bit by giving entertainment to their fellow students. But those are still unqualified students that prevented a much more qualified student from attending.

Punish the rich parents for breaking the law. But if you want crocodile tears over the poor kids who missed out on admissions because a less qualified student was admitted, you had better be open to the "big picture" discussion!!!!!!

The average and median grades at places like Harvard and Yale are As. Their academic standards are a joke. Their most famous and distinguished profs don´t teach. Teaching is done by graduate students from the Third World. Send your kids to Slippery Rock. They´ll get a better education and save a ton of money.

As Alan Dershowitz has said, 60 years ago when he started teaching at Harvard the grade standards were so high that unqualified students would have flunked out and the scam would not have succeeded.

But today there is so much grade inflation, or not requiring any grades at all, that unqualified students can make it through a lot of supposedly top flight colleges and universities as long as they pay their tuition and living expenses, attend the majority of their classes, show some interest when called upon, and get along with whoever the instructors are who are presenting their classes. Clearly the current grade inflation or not requiring any grades at all did not come about so that just the children of the rich and famous could make it through, but also so that a lot of affirmative action based diversity students can graduate with ethnic and racial studies degrees, without having a clue about real disciplines in the legitimate sciences that lead to valued STEM degrees and the like.

But, other than the two actresses who have had their photos plastered onto just about every article about the scandal, I do NOT see a list of the REST of the CHEATER PARENTS.

By the way, #5 is on to something. Aside from removing the goobermint from student loans and that $1.5T hole for taxpayers that the libtard commies want to soak us with by forgiving loans, universities should be forced to use their endowment money, not our taxpayer money.

Say this for Democrats: They can be very effective — at least, when it comes to misleading Americans on taxes. That’s clear from the wide gap between the number of people who got tax cuts last year and the far smaller number who think they did. As even The New York Times (yes, the anti-Trump Times) noted, Tax Policy Center figures show 65 percent of taxpayers got tax cuts last year, thanks to the 2017 Trump tax reforms; just 6 percent had to pay more. Yet in early April, SurveyMonkey found only 40 percent of Americans believed they saw savings,

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof spent yet another Easter Sunday trying to see just how little one can believe of Christianity’s anchoring ideas, and still consider oneself a Christian. Kristof refers to these regular interviews with theological figures as “my occasional series of conversations about Christianity.” All have the same theme -- seeing if one can get away with calling oneself a Christian if you don’t actually buy that whole virgin birth and Resurrection mythology. Fortunately for him, this year’s interviewee was on Kristof’s wavelength. This year he talked with Serene Jones, Protestant minister and president of Union Theological

Just three months after taking office, the Democratic socialist congresswoman’s challengers include an Egyptian American journalist, who has already tossed her hat in the ring, and an NYPD cop-turned-high-school-civics teacher and conservative talk-radio producer, both of whom are seriously exploring a run against her.

But when one of his wisdom teeth began to ache, he started looking for someone new. An acquaintance recommended John Roger Lund, whose practice was a convenient 10-minute walk from Mitchell’s home, in San Jose, California. Lund’s practice was situated in a one-story building with clay roof tiles that housed several dental offices. The interior was a little dated, but not dingy. The waiting room was small and the decor minimal: some plants and photos,
