PS, here’s Tom Edsall trying to spin these SAT scores in the NYT.
Headline: Will Trump Destroy Society?
1. There are losers in society, and there has been an election.
2. Test scores indicate whites and (esp.) Asians dominate.
3. This is sad but not inevitable because bla bla bla (sorry couldn’t follow the many paragraphs of irrelevant socially conscious bs).
4. The facts are clear, but will Trump listen?
So the basic theme of this story is that America has pretty much set up minority children to fail and the systems are set up to benefit white kids. Yet the statistic shows here reveal that Asian-American kids blow white kids away. The disparity between whites and Asians is rather large. Yet there is zero attempt to reconcile this reality with the argument that the educational system hurts minorities. None of these social “scientists” seem to care about the white-Asian disparity even though as “scientists”, you would think it would pique their interests.
