College Cheating Scandal: The Lessons.

Wealthy parents are being arrested on charges they cheated and bribed to get their kids into elite colleges, exposing a system of corrupt advantages. Now some question why the system that helps those with money and influence is rarely examined, while affirmative action, to help disadvantaged minorities, is often suspect and the target of legal challenges.

Guest: Dr. Cecilia Rios-Aguilar, Professor, Associate Dean of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, CA

Guest: María Echaveste, Academic Researcher, Center for Latin American Studies, University of California, Berkeley, White House Deputy Chief of Staff under President Clinton, Berkeley, CA.
