    The Years That Matter Most ePUB ä The Years PDF/EPUB years ebok, that pdf, matter pdf, most pdf, The Years free, That Matter book, Years That Matter epub, The Years That Matter Most PDF/EPUBOf all the college and meritocracy books this is the best and the most interesting Tough cuts through the data and the hype and offers a timely analysis of inequality and meritocracy as it relates to the college admissions process In sum it is not really a meritocracy The SAT correlates with family income Elite colleges take mostly rich kids And it actually does matter which college you go to He also debunks the dumb trope about how people should skip college to become welders making 100k See Marco Rubio Turns out you have to go to college to be a welder and you only make 35k The one thing that I think is missing from some of these books is an attempt to think through other reasons for a college education besides future income—maybe like learning to think and be a human or whatever I get that with college be

    The Years That Matter Most ePUB ä The Years PDF/EPUB years ebok, that pdf, matter pdf, most pdf, The Years free, That Matter book, Years That Matter epub, The Years That Matter Most PDF/EPUBI have worked in this field for 20 years and not only does Tough get it he sees far beyond most of us who can’t see beyond our trenches He is a evocative writer who will make you desperately care about where a girl from the Bronx gets into college He does an overview of educational policy that has led us to this perilous place that made so many things clear that weren’t before I read this bookA mark of a great book is knowing the right people to talk to By highlighting the work of Angel and Jon he demonstrates his deep understanding of the issues in admissions I thought the highlight would be the chapters that feature friends of mine but the final 100 pages which is a surprisingly fascinating indictment of how calculus is taught in college is fantastic I know I know but trust me it
