WANTED: SMART STUDENTS FROM POOR FAMILIES

(Clare Sestanovich/YH ALUMNA)

(Clare Sestanovich/YH ALUMNA)

The only thing I love more than the Missed Connections section of Craigslist is classism. So when I saw that the Yale Alumni Magazine had beautifully incorporated my two favorite things on the cover of their January/February issue, I jumped for joy! If you were wondering what the Yale Alumni Magazine is, then also me too. Is it a magazine for alumni? Written by alumni? An actual publication that is read? We don’t know. What we do know is that it has an editorial board that doesn’t understand the concept of “editing” or like “respect”.

Because I have never stepped foot in a public school, I know about metaphors. I would love to break  this one down so that those poor public school “people” will understand, but “low-hanging fruit” whatever. This sucks so much that I think I’ll let someone else write a YDN Opinion piece on this and get back to you later.

Happy New Year!
