Elite Colleges say they'll change admissions criterion but will they really?

Meredith Kolodner of The Hechinger Report asks some very important questions about the Turning the Tide released out of Harvard and endorsed by 56 top colleges and universities. The well intentioned report hopes to bring about changes in a college admissions process that seems to create high levels of stress and anxiety for affluent applicants and essentially leaves out students from low income families. Kolodner questions, however, whether the report will actually lead to meaningful change.
“Many colleges have a required minimum ACT or SAT scores to even have your application read. Has that changed? You’re either using it or not using it as a gatekeeper.”
