Admissions scandal reveals why America’s elite colleges are under fire

The scandal drew condemnation from across the political spectrum. It riled pundits at the Heritage Foundation, a right-wing think tank influential with the Trump administration. … “Higher education policies have always favored the elite,” said Mary Clare Amselem, a higher education policy expert at Heritage. “What’s apparent is that our higher education system has become less of a place that encourages students to pursue an education with real-world skills. Congress could change this by limiting the federal government’s out-of-control lending for student loans and dismantling the accreditation monopoly that allows this outdated college system to fester and grow.”
