Entrance exam cheaters exploited rules for disabled students
By SALLY HO
Federal court papers detail how college entrance exam policies aimed at helping students with disabilities were exploited to enable cheating in a massive college admissions bribery scandal.
At least 50 people were charged in the scheme, which included not only admissions test cheating but also bribing coaches to gain admission into elite schools.
An affidavit made public Tuesday alleges that parents were told to seek disability accommodations for their children and then request the exams be given at centers where test administrators were bribed "to allow a third party to facilitate cheating." Court papers say clients paid $15,000 to $75,000 per test structured as charitable donations.
