An Honest Rant on College Admissions

Top

The film Operation Varsity Blues, a chronicle of the massive college admissions scandal that occurred from 2011 to 2018, was just published on Netflix. It is a pretty damning (and tragic)film. In this episode of The Growth Equation podcast, Brad and Steve use the film as a jumping off point to an in-depth discussion of everything that is wrong with higher education. Of course, they also offer some ideas on how to fix it. Topics discussed include standardized testing, to pay or not to pay athletes, and how so many schools have become a luxury brands in the same way that a Prada bag or Gucci wallet are. Warning: this show is not for the faint of heart or easily offended. Brad and Steve don’t hold back in their analysis of how we got into this mess. But it will take this kind of brutally honest analysis if we are to have any chance at working our way out.
