Friday night on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin picked apart the problems with the recent move to weight SAT scores with “secret adversity scores.”

Levin pointed to a recent Daily Mail story that explained how the organization behind the widely used aptitude test plans to introduce a secret 15-point scoring system designed to supposedly level the playing field by giving students from certain economic or racial backgrounds extra points.

“This whole mentality has taken hold of our society,” Levin said of identity politics. “Now it’s taken hold of the SAT.”

Levin compared reactions to the news about the SAT with the widespread outcry against the recent admissions scandal involving Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman and made it clear which is a bigger problem for qualified, aspiring college students.

“The issue of identity politics has seeped its way into college admissions, and it’s been this way for some time,” Levin explained.

“There’s a hell of a lot more kids who are disadvantaged as the result of a system that is infected with identity politics than kids who are affected by what a handful of starlets have done for their children.”
