SAT bias

Bias at elite universities:

White         0     0
Hispanic   +130    +0.3

Wall Street Journal article on SAT bias.

The bias is larger than the difference in score. For example, Asians outscore Blacks on average by 377 points, and Harvard favors Blacks over Asians by 450 points.

The Asian American Coalition for Education has filed a complaint with the Department of Education requesting that they investigate Harvard admissions.

A group of individuals is running for Harvard's Board of Overseers with the platform of making Harvard admissions more fair. The candidates are Ralph Nader, Ron Unz, Stephen Hsu, Stuart Taylor, and Lee Cheng. Article

One of the few schools with race-blind admissions is Caltech, and it is reflected by the fact that they have the best SAT scores.

Improving education

We identify ways to imrove education and we expand on each in the sections below.

*   Professors: Make professors independent of universities and departments. If they can get students then they're in business.

*   Tuition: Most of the money should go directly from the student to the professor that's teaching the student.

*   Textbooks: Break the monopoly of price gouging textbook manufacturers by creating a complete set of free online textbooks.

*   Private school: Make it possible to have a mix of publically and privately paid teachers. All teachers, public and private, can teach in the student center as long as they can get students.

*   Student center: Have a large and comfortable student center. Hold classes in the student center rather than in remote departments.

*   Grades: Find better ways than grades to benchmark skill.

*   Majors: Deemphasize majors and emphasize skill. Make it possible to customize a curriculum as long as it is rigorous.

*   Administration: Eliminate unncessary administration and have students fulful as many administrative functions as possible.

*   Private universities: the only private universities costing less than $40000/year are BYU and the College of the Ozarks. Your only options for low tuition are these universities and state schools. Establish cheap private universities.

*   Multiple universities: Make it possible to construct a curriculum from multiple universities, including online universities. Make it possible to work and study at the same time. Deemphasize the concept of bundled "full time tuition".

*   Data on America universities.


Tuition and administrative bloat

Professors should be independent of the university and the department, and classes should be organized directly with the professor. This enables professors with unique style to exist, as long as they can attract students. Don't try to build a costly research powerhouse. If researchers are included, encourage researchers that bring in grant money or have projects that can be tackled by undergrads.

Minimize administrators.

Hire students for administrative jobs such as librarians, registrars, and security.

Don't try to build an endowment. Spend the money now.

Professors decide the content, not administrators.

The emphasis should be on courses rather than the degree.

Small classes to enable discussion.

Don't assign expensive textbooks. Content should be available online for free.

Grades

Textbooks

The textbook market does not operate in the same manner as most consumer markets. The end consumers (students) do not select the product, and the product is not purchased by faculty or professors. Therefore, price is removed from the purchasing decision, giving the publishers disproportionate market power to set prices high.

This situation is exacerbated by the lack of competition in the textbook market. Consolidation has reduced the number of major textbook companies from around 30 to just a handful, reducing competition and inhibiting startups.

Publishers also "bundle" supplemental items into a textbook, such a online problem sets. Students do not always have the option to purchase these items separately, and often the one-time-use supplements destroy the resale value of the textbook. A 2005 Government Accountability Office (GAO) Report found that the production of these supplemental items was the primary cause of rapidly increasing prices.


Student center

The most important building is the student center, which should have:

Classrooms, rehearsal space
Lounges, TV rooms, game rooms
Gym, lockers, etc.
Kitchen, dining rooms, refrigerators.
Temorary offices that professors can use as needed.

Most universities segment their classrooms by department building, which is a poor use of space. The laboratories should be sepqrate from the classroom building.


Tuition

Suppose students paid tuition directly to professors.

Classes taken per year by a student     =   10
Students per class                      =   20
Classes taught per year by a professor  =    8
Students taught per year by a professor =  160
Tuition per student per class           =  500 $
Tuition per student per year            = 5000 $
Tuition received per professor per year =80000 $
It is possible to construct a university where the annual tuition is less than $10000 and where the professors are well paid.

Grades

Under the current system, a bad grade cannot be undone. As an alternative to grades,

The only grade is "pass" and there is a high standard for passing. If you don't pass then no record is kept that would disrupt your transcript. You can take as long as needed to achieve a pass.

Have professors write letters of recommendation that are posted on a website that a student can link to. This enables a student's unique achievements to be recorded. The emphasis should be on the professors and the student's achievements, rather than the university and the degree. Chuck Norris's letter of recommendation

Institute flexibility so that credit can be earned by tests, howework, projects, labs, or any combination of the above.


High school curriculum

Style

Professors should be at liberty to have style, and students should have a diversity of professor styles to choose from.

Your defenses must be as flexible and inventive as the arts you seek to undo
If you do not study, you shall not pass!
It's my job to think as dark wizards do. When it comes to the dark arts i believe in a practical approach. You need to know what you're up against.
Do you really believe that just because you downloaded a kung fu program that you can do kung fu?

Things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler

Much to learn, you still have
Complex problems have simple, easy to understand, wrong answers

Common Core

Wikipedia: The Common Core standards are copyrighted by NGA Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), which controls use of and licenses the standards. The NGA Center and CCSSO do this by offering a public license which is used by State Departments of Education. The license states that use of the standards must be "in support" of the Common Core State Standards Initiative. It also requires attribution and a copyright notice, except when a state or territory has adopted the standards "in whole".

In other words, if you teach in a Common Core state, you do not have the discretion to modify the standards or to improve them. The standards should be public domain to empower teachers.

Wikipedia: U.S. President Barack Obama and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the Race to the Top competitive grants on July 24, 2009, as a motivator for education reform. Though states could adopt other college and career-ready standards and still be eligible, they were awarded extra points in their Race to the Top applications if they adopted the Common Core standards by August 2, 2010.

In other words, Federal money was used to compel states to conform to the Common Core.
