Asian here, did K-12 in Brooklyn public schools. I think the key line here is “Little attention is given to the fact that Asians must earn anywhere from 50 to 140 points higher on the SAT to have an equal chance at college admission as whites.” This is incredibly true — what many people don't realize is that Asians face *reverse affirmative action* where they need to score more than their peers (even more than their wealthier peers who have far more resources) to achieve the same results. Is it any surprise that there is an incredible race-to-the-top in doing extra tutoring sessions, home tutoring, coaching, etc? We need to do all those things to get to the same place other get to by default. I have two kids now and it has started already…
