      It’s like the only thing we have educated high schoolers for: standardized testing & college prep... is fundamentally failing.

      Makes one wonder about all the others.. you know the kids who didn’t apply to college this time around.

      I think the goal from a K-12 education should be to spread the love of learning. And preparing kids how to effectively use the latest technologies for exploration, in terms of the things that interest them.

      the entire college admissions process is decentralized ... someone should make a “handshake for college admissions” to connect guidance counselors to resources, help students manage tests, connect w consultants and manage applications.

      also — sad to see how covid exacerbates gaps for folks from disadvantaged backgrounds at every step.
