Say Yes to Education Featured in Today’s New York Times

Today’s New York Times showcases the work of Say Yes to Education and its partners — particularly its newest partner community, Guilford County (Greensboro-High Point), North Carolina — on its Letters to the Editor Page.

In her letter, Mary Anne Schmitt-Carey, the president of Say Yes, responds to a column in The Times over the weekend by Frank Bruni. The column referenced one of Say Yes’ Higher Education Compact partners, Davidson College in NC, and the ways in which it looks beyond test scores in sizing up the applications of students from low-income and other underrepresented backgrounds.

Here is a link to the letter, as published in the online and print editions: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/09/opinion/college-for-the-poor.html?partner=rssnyt&emc=rss

And here, as a reference, is the column that prompted the letter: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/06/opinion/sunday/hidden-gold-in-college-applications.html
