As you can see from recent posts, I'm a little disturbed by the decline in U.S. education quality. Apparently, lowering standards is an important part of fairness and diversity!
Drew University, a small liberal arts school in Madison, NJ, on Tuesday said that applicants no longer need to submit scores from the SAT or ACT. "We are making SAT scores optional because we believe this action will help Drew increase its selectivity, improve its diversity, and enhance overall student quality," school President Robert Weisbuch said. Drew is believed to be the first major four-year institution in the state to dump the exams. Nationwide, more than 700 schools - or about one-fourth of all schools that grant bachelor's degrees - no longer require the standardized tests, according to The National Center for Fair & Open Testing.
I'm not making this up. See the article.
