Against “Compassionate” College Admission

Criticism of the “Turning the Tide” paper from the Harvard Graduate School of Education is picking up some steam since I wrote about it here two weeks ago. See these articles at (“Why Harvard-Recommended ‘Compassionate Admissions’ Won’t Change Anything”) and The New Yorker (“The Poisonous Reach of the College-Admissions Process”) for their perspectives. See also Chris Teare’s Q & A with me, also at, about this topic.
