"Elite High Schools Plot to Undermine College Admissions"

Even given the low expectations I have for good sense in K-12 education, this is really dopey.

The plan — by the Mastery Transcript Consortium, which counts over 100 top private schools as members — would have its participants stop reporting grades to college admissions offices and instead provide a new model for transcripts and portfolios. The consortium’s proposal would serve as one more step in a trend going back a century toward introducing vagueness and, by extension, discretionary power into college admissions.

If, supposedly, wealthy people can give their offspring an unfair advantage on the SATs and getting good high school grades, wait until you see how large an advantage they can procure in getting good "portfolios".
