College Bribery Scandal Embarrasses U S Education System

#1
It's no secret that wealth brings advantages when it comes to sending your kids to college. Rich and famous parents can donate large sums of money to schools or lean on their names and connections. Some ritzy colleges explicitly prefer the children and grandchildren of alumni — at Harvard University, an investigation found last year that these "legacy" admits were over five times more likely to get in than the average Joe.


Yet federal prosecutors say that for 33 wealthy parents, these advantages were not enough. A college consultant named William Singer, of Newport Beach, Calif., pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to a cheating scheme that included bribing SAT test proctors and college coaches on behalf of these families.
The indictment names prominent actresses and business leaders. It alleges crazy stunts — like having a stand-in take a college entrance exam, photo-doctoring to paste a student's head onto the body of an athlete, bribing college sports coaches and paying up to $75,000 for falsified exam results, all in the name of getting their kids admission through what Singer called "a side door" to schools like Yale University, the University of Texas at Austin and the University of Southern California.

But they sang "Hillary for president"
:p


Kapseret MP Oscar Sudi has dismissed the DPP Noordin Haji’s publicized breakdown of graft list by ethnic groups.
The list was meant to end the claims that the graft war targets Kalenjins.

In what brings a fresh twist to the politicized war on graft, he claimed Deputy President William Ruto’s political enemies had hatched a plot to assassinate him if the scheme to portray him as corrupt does not succeed.

This is double-speak. Blacks and other minorities with lower grades than whites who deserve it are allowed into the same colleges because of the "affirmative action" law.
If whites with the same grades 'pay' their way into the same system that disregards merit... Inaitwa scandal!!
Malcom X tried to warn niggas about the consequences of the civil rights act in 1964 na wakamchukia tu sana.

There's no way you can accept inherent 'special privileges' yet at the same time demand 'equality' from a system that trapped you into accepting those special privileges.
