  1. I'm not sure about this….both my parents were from the "ghetto", got married, father was abusive, moved to the suburbs during high school, all of my family still lived in the "ghetto", got divorced AFTER I graduated. If I took the SAT with this information, it would make it seem like I came from the perfect background. Marriaged parents living in a low crime area (low adversity score) and truly, I may spend weekends in the "ghetto" my my mother is technically a single parent in real life but on paper she's married. And I've only been in a suburban school for about 2 years which would make me (high adversity).

  2. Huge fail idea. Fix the schools & neighborhoods so the kids actually learn something & can compete instead of dumbing them down with false entitlements. Not doing them any favors in the job market or real world.

  3. It’s official: As an employer, I will not hire anyone born after 1990. The vast majority of “adults” born after that year are not able to cope with reality and I’m not willing to sift through the drek to find the diamond in the rough.

  4. So basically, someone can spend 17 years of their life working crazy hard, but in the end can’t get into the college they deserve because they happen to live in a high income area? What if you live in a high income area because of how hard your family worked?

  5. does the ''adversity score'' make fair, subjectivity issues when SAT grading, or perhaps when students have less height, wider noses, darker skin, or perhaps are of East/South Asian ancestry, medical issues, learning issues, self-esteem issues, concentration issues, home abuse issues…imbeciles. they opened up a can of stupidity. why, does the Left insist on playing God? – don't they know what happened to Jesus when he tried?

  6. Who will be measuring the adversity? Will they have to take a test? Also, did he say the more “privileged” kids will have more expectations? I grew up in the projects. Bombed the SAT’s. Got a full tuition leadership scholarship. SAT’s didn’t define me. This is pandering, patronizing, and the worst crutch.
