Don't Send Your Kid to the Ivy League
The nation’s top colleges are turning our kids into zombies.
"The truth is that the meritocracy was never more than partial. Visit any elite campus across our great nation, and you can thrill to the heart-warming spectacle of the children of white businesspeople and professionals studying and playing alongside the children of black, Asian, and Latino businesspeople and professionals. Kids at schools like Stanford think that their environment is diverse if one comes from Missouri and another from Pakistan, or if one plays the cello and the other lacrosse. Never mind that all of their parents are doctors or bankers."
So many great pull quotes from this story on why Ivy League schools are the epitome of inequality and a flawed model of a meritocracy.
