How The College Admissions Scandal Could Spell Trouble For Students With Disabilities
from Disability Scoop
Advocates for students with disabilities are concerned that accommodations for college entrance exams could tighten in the wake of an admissions cheating scandal. Last week, federal prosecutors indicted 50 people across the country for their roles in fraudulently seeking admission to elite colleges. One tactic those behind the scheme allegedly used was helping students fake learning disabilities so they could obtain special accommodations when taking the SAT or ACT. With accommodations of extra time or a private setting, the students’ answers were then corrected or someone else took the test for them, prosecutors said.
