Nicholas Lemann in The New Yorker: Want to Fix College? Admissions Aren’t the Biggest Problem. “No change in whom the most selective colleges admit would have a fraction of the good effect on the country that increasing the proportion of college graduates would have. What’s the barrier to this? It isn’t that we don’t have a big enough higher-education system. These days, about ninety per cent of young people have some interaction with college. The problem is that not enough of them graduate, and so they cannot reap the copious benefits that a degree provides.” (If people can cheat their way into college, maybe they can cheat their way out…)
