Rant d’Jour: Equity and Equality in the Ivy League 

Rant d’jour: Affirmative Action, Equity and Equality at *Harvard University. 

In reality, Harvard only accepts the best students with the highest scores. 
If they are so damn good at educating our youth, let them take those who can benefit the most from such an education. 
The truth is, if Harvard only accepts the best students, their job (presumably, to turn out highest achievers; the creme de la creme; the best of the best) is *that* much easier. 
Think how easy their job is given their baseline population. 
This makes no sense! 
If Harvard is so damn good at teaching people, let them take the worst and make them the best. 
Give the Academic Elite a real challenge. 
Are they up 

for it? 
Are you?

Footnotes: *I used Harvard synbolically to represent elite Ivy League colleges and Univeristities. 
Could jusr as easily subsitute Vandervilt University, Columbia, Cornell, Brown etc.
