I remember when the college admissions story broke. I remember the perp walks. I remember the shame, the gossip, and the scandal, that so many wealthy celebrities would use their money to pave the path for their kids to get into a prestigious college. I know that they mean well for their kids, but do they really need to pay for preferential admissions to an elite college just so that their kids have an economic advantage over someone else’s kids?
