apotheosis27: Kimothy: Maybe if the SAT and ACT actually tested what they claim to test, this wouldn't matter.

They claim they test "college readiness" but white males outscore every other group, but white females graduate from college at the highest rate. If this test really tested "college readiness" women would outscore men.

All tests have built in biases - this one definitely favors mid to upper middle class white people.

So you think there should be an ebonics section or something?

I think that's a pussy excuse. The SAT & ACT were not that difficult.

simplicimus: hitlersbrain: Computer Programming is a good example. I only have an Associates degree and make more money than I ever thought I would. College degrees don't write software for you and even big companies can only afford so many unproductive degree collectors. I'm guessing engineering is the same way and that's why companies go overseas for their engineers today.

Please, these unproductive degree collectors prefer the term MBA.


This.

I recall an old commercial on the radio with a woman explaining something to a colleague. As she notices his initial difficulties in grasping whatever she is attempting to explain, he retorts with, "But, I'm an MBA."

After which, she uses slower speech and small words in an effort to better explain the material.

Prepare for an onslaught of white guys who couldn't get into the Advanced Mediocrity program and NE State University because of the bias against white guys.
