Art, music, theater? Which kids are articulate? Which kids can afford $40-50,00/yearly tuition? Which kids parents are ALUMS of said UNIVERSITY?

Public schools try to prepare ALL KIDS for life in the big-bad world. There is not now NOR has there ever been a level playing field for ALL KIDS.

Here's what Harvard is looking for.

Universities pick people based on race. University discriminate against Asians, and Whites. Asians and Whites that are more qualified are turned away.

All of the top 20 schools in the US are all Charter Schools

another interesting fact

17 of the 20 are in RED states.
Shit. I didn't know you were here.

Yes, charter schools can be effective when managed properly. Unfortunately, the greater majority concentrate on making their owners rich as opposed to education.

And yes, some are in red states. Like I said, when properly funded and with setting the right priorities, i.e., educating children, they're effective and really needed in those red states who drastically cut funding while increasing class size.
Thanks from RNG

It is fairly common knowledge. Princeton did a research that Asians need the highest SAT scores and GPA to be accepted into the top universities, followed by Whites, then Hispanics, and finally Blacks. Google it. Harvard is being sued right now.

Also don't forget Affirmative Action.

It is true that more qualified people are turned away.
Mostly to allow less qualified whites to attend, based on Daddy's wealth.
How do you think George W. Bush got into Yale?
