Sounds nice in theory

There’s been a lot of hand-wringing about private schools and the college admissions process. For instance, in today’s D, Zac Goldstein leads with, “Minorities, legacies and elite high schools–all seem to benefit during the admissions process. With acceptance rates above average for these groups…”

Oddly enough, the sidebar attached to the article shows that students from private high schools had an 18.1% admittance rate, versus 18.8% for public high schools, and 18.3% overall. Hardly “above average,” Mr. Goldstein.
