The Legacy System Perpetuates Inequality

The “Legacy System” in American education offers admission or admission preference to students whose parents have previously attended the college or university. Does this ensure that the same elite families over time have continued access to some of the best education in America at the cost of lower-class students’ ability to go to a top school? Harvard recently boasted that for the first time, their incoming class is majority non-white, but economically speaking, the majority still comes from the top 10% or so. — https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/higher-education-s-biggest-scam-legacy-admissions-policies-ncna812116
