Lowering the bar

The Supreme Court of the USA has agreed to hear a case which would challenge “affirmative action.” Writing at the SCOTUS Blog, Amy Howe says that earlier Supreme Court rulings allowed colleges to consider the race of potential students, in order to “assemble a diverse student body.”

College Board, the body which develops and administers standardized tests for schools and higher education, has announced changes to the SAT exam. The test will be shortened in length and completed digitally. Auguste Meyrat at The Federalist says the move represents a dumbing down of the test and is purely motivated by identity politics. As we have written before, merit is “out” and virtue signaling is “in.”
