I picked a recent topic called Operation Varsity Blues. William Rick Singer, the founder of   Edge College & Career Network also known as “The Key,” was accused of accepting over 25 million dollars in bribery to accept students into elite colleges such as Yale University, Georgetown University, and Stanford University by falsely claiming a student as a competitive athlete and illegally boosting a student’s SAT scores. I choose this topic because it greatly impacts the education system in the U.S. if anyone can just pay for; rather than earn the acceptance into those elite schools, it lowers the value of earning it since there have been at least 50 cases that have been opened.
