Mometrix Media LLC Mometrix Test Preparation Gives Unfair Advantage to Students Beaumont Texas
*General Comment: They don't have these problems in Cuba
*Consumer Comment: Interesting report.
Mometrix Media is a well-known company that makes study guides for important tests. From what I have seen of them, they must be one of the biggest companies in the business. They have study guides for almost any test you can think of. Which is fine. But here’s what ISN’T fine. They charge a lot for their products. In some cases, they want like forty or fifty dollars for a study guides. Now for a lot of folks that may not sound like a lot of money. But for the millions of students in the USA who are growing up in poverty, Mometrix might as well be charging a million dollars for their test preparation study guides, because for these kids and their parents, asking them to come up with fifty dollars is about like asking them to come up with a million dollars. These families don’t have access to wealth. Many of them are single parent households. For a single mom or dad, who’s lucky if they have a job that pays more than minimum wage (if they have a job at all), shelling out $40 or $50 for a study guide to help their child pass the required graduation exam, or to help them prepare for college admissions test, is simply out of the question.
I live in a major American city. In many of the schools in my district, poverty is so rampant that almost 100% of students qualify for free lunches at school. This is true of thousands of other urban schools in the US, too. These kids already have the odds stacked against them when it comes to succeeding in school and going on to college. They need all the help they can get. Of all the students in America, if there are any who deserve help when it comes to getting a high score on the SAT or ACT, it’s these kids. But they’re the ones who least can afford it. At the same time, wealthier parents are able to buy their kids access to these test prep materials that give their kid an unfair advantage. Some call this capitalism. I call it discrimination against poor and urban students. Everyone deserves a chance to succeed in life, and it’s not right to give some students an unfair advantage over others just because they came from a wealthy family.
