The Realities of Class Based Affirmative Action

I admire these young ladies to have the courage to talk about this “taboo” topic in a constructive manner. We need to create mainstream vehicles where all students are expected to have these conversations about class and how it impacts the out of class learning experience. Furthermore, I would love to understand how having capable students from lower socio-economic backgrounds changes how upper school students perceive “poor” people and their capabilities. It may show that those with more economic means may not have these means because they are smarter/better, but because they had access. This could up-end some people’s views of meritocracy and the American Dream.
