Two books on college admissions challenge the facade of meritocracy and show the many ways in which the system is rigged in favor of the rich https://t.co/cGhGOTximF

Preference. Privilege. Pedigree. My @nytimesbooks debut tackles how all three play out in college admissions through "Unacceptable" by @melissakorn & @jenniferlevitz and "Who Gets In and Why" by @jselingo #ThePrivilegedPoor @ASAnews @Harvard_Press @hgse https://t.co/xffgcfDVCf

"Reading The Privileged Poor has opened my eyes to the extent of socioeconomic imbalance in our upper education system." 

As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.

"Access is not inclusion. What does it mean to be a poor student on a rich campus?" Started to read #ThePrivilegedPoor by @tony_jack. https://t.co/ZmdeUC1GU2

Highlight: "Access is not inclusion," @tony_jack says. "You cannot just believe that giving students financial aid is all they need to succeed in college. If you don't actually care... between convocation and commencement, you will continue to do a disservice." Full interview: https://t.co/fL8l0V4fEL

Excited for today's conversation at 4:30 on @YahooFinance #ATimeForChange. We'll be focusing on racial inequity in education with 'Privileged Poor' author @tony_jack, @FindCollegeFit founder @VielkaHoy and discuss a new Edelman study on Race in America with @richardwedelman.

As students deliberate their options for further education, made more challenging by the pandemic, we’re reminded that getting in is only half the battle. We spoke to two book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor by @tony_jack this summer. https://t.co/OLzNBYtepA

What a great way to start the day: hearing bookclubs reflect on lessons learned from #ThePrivilegedPoor! https://t.co/FMAd0JbzVw @ECUBrodySOM @MSUEntomology https://t.co/mefEnQVwIt
