How Universities Contribute To Inequality

When the 2019 college admissions scandal broke, it reaffirmed what education scholars already knew: there are severe inequities among who and who is not admitted to colleges and universities. Anthony Carnevale, director of the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce, talks to host Krys Boyd about how our higher education system contributes to inequality. His book, co-written with Peter Schmidt and Jeff Strohl, is “The Merit Myth: How Our Colleges Favor the Rich and Divide America.”
