The Lyrics

Well, well. Here I was working on another somewhat controversial parody, when this news story crosses my eye. Celebrity parent children getting free rides at Ivy League colleges and a bribery scandal to boot. Even when I found out that one of those famous kids will not give a damn about their education, well now you have struck the ire of the Vile man. Btw, I am sure that Another Brick in the Wall Part 2, by Pink Floyd would have worked here also.
(Verse 1)
Well we just don’t care
Getting taught from there
Enrollment not fair
‘Cause of parents flair
And even their grades suck
Nothing to say
Dean is out of luck
Bribe their way

School’s scammed by celebs
School’s found, out, by feds
School brings in legacies
No more short cuts
No more crooks
They will probly burn their books

(Verse 2)
Want to join the crew
Don’t need to be athletic
Don’t need meritocracy
Cause tuition costs are just expensive


I’m not famous
But I’m smart
What’s your excuse for no start*

School’s found, out, by feds
School’s scammed by celebs
School’s got no scholars
School just gone corrupt
* = Obstacles for those who are more diligent in their studies that want to go for Ivy League schools. That would include minorities to a large extent. When you think about the "no child left behind" policy, some schools didn't want to enforce it based on merits, resume, or extra-curriculars. Maybe they should change it to "no minority left behind" as a means of being more inclusive. Take wealth and connections out of the equation.

Universities want some scholars, some athletes, some priority minorities, some children of rich parents. So some children get in as athletes when they should be classified as children of rich parents. So what. SAT shouldn't be sending out tests to every Tom Dick and Harry. What business is it of the FBI?

Affluence makes my heart go bitter. When businesses (or other well off industries like entertainment) start to make too much of an investment in education, I would expect that child would take advantage of the opportunity. This FBI investigation was at the early stages when I posted this, but I doubt we will be hearing from the Secretary of Education about this matter. Let alone changing endowment criteria for more affordable education.

^^Yeah, you won't hear Betsy DeVos utter a peep about this, as an Amway trust fund baby she probably knows alllll to well about this...
