Recent U.S. Supreme court rulings and the 2019 “Operation Varsity Blues College Admissions Scandal” have resulted in intense discussions about who has the right or opportunity to pursue a college degree. Operation Varsity Blues, in particular, made it very clear that the admissions processes at some universities reproduce long-standing racist, classist, and ableist inequities in larger society. For instance, so-called “merit-based” admissions processes, including the overreliance on standardized test scores and financial aid to affluent families, result in race and wealth gaps at institutions of higher education.
