Some students have already filed a law suit against colleges and universities over the admissions bribery scandal, in which parents paid to rig their children’s standardized exams and bribe coaches to have their children designated as recruited athletes in sports that the students never even played.
Several students have brought a class action suit against schools involved in the scandal, including Yale, Georgetown and Stanford, charging they and others were denied a fair chance at admission. They are seeking damages and the return of application fees for themselves and other school applicants.
The lawsuit charges, “Each of the universities took the students’ admission application fees while failing to take adequate steps to ensure that their admissions process was fair and free of bribery, fraud, cheating and dishonesty.”
Will these privileged students be allowed to skate away with their college credits and degrees? Is that fair to any other student on the planet?
In my opinion, the Board of Trustees for each of the colleges in question need to teach what is right and what is wrong, to not only the parents but the students who are benefiting from the cheating, as well. Kick them all out and make them start over.
