NY Times: Asians Too Smart for Their Own Good

posted by Randall

College CampusAn op ed piece in the NY Times asks the question if Asians are too smart for their own good. A 2009 study found that white students were three times as likely to be admitted to selective universities than Asian American students with the same academic record. A professor at Northwestern University asks Will Harvard still be Harvard with so many Asians?”  She also wonders what lessons are kids learning about hard work and good grades? Thanks to @caseycapachi for sending me this link

What’s your opinion. Do you think we need to level the playing field for Asian American students?
