And, as has been the case for years, students from wealthier families score better than do those from disadvantaged families.
@NickFlynn You should double check your Harvard Crimson SAT data that you reported in post #33. It is wrong. Hint, the graph of SAT by ethnicity is incorrect, the correct information is posted just below the graph. Apparently Harvard's Crimson editors are fallible.[/qupte]
Hint: He posted "the correct information below the graph" in post #36. Which we've referred to in several posts since.
The SAT gap between ethnicity is widening. In post #46 granny2 referenced the article from insidehighereducation providing data that SAT scores having dropped for every ethnicity with the exception of Asians over the past 10 years. You have helped confuse granny2 and others as a result of your unfounded statements based upon NickFlynn's posting of bad data.
"it is not true that there's some yawning gap between the scores by race in elite college acceptances." You make this assertion without any data to back it up. I and others would like to see you support your beliefs.
Please present valid references for your assertions that the racial gap is small and not as large as stated by Prof. Espenshade et. al. at Harvard or any other top school. Best of luck finding such data.
