  • Racial imbalance? Admissions policies at Harvard and Stuyvesant HS under scrutiny      Mon, 18 Jun 2018 19:56:30 -0400

    Racial imbalance? Admissions policies at Harvard and Stuyvesant HS under scrutinyHarvard University, because it is accused of admitting too few Asian-American students, and New York’s most selective public schools, because the city’s mayor thinks it is admitting too many. As admissions at the nation’s most competitive schools become evermore competitive — Harvard admitted 4.59 percent of applicants this year, while the acceptance rate at New York’s Stuyvesant High School has been estimated at 17 percent — the controversies are a reminder that every change in the admissions equation that increases the chances of members of one group inevitably disadvantage others. Both situations also reflect the fact that Asian-American students tend to excel academically, particularly on standardized achievement tests.
