More discrimination! Just lovely!
Asian parents pay more for Princeton Review’s ACT preparation courses, a new analysis by Pro Publica finds, even when controlling for income. Asians are almost twice as likely as non-Asians to be offered a higher price for the test preparation service, the study found.
Princeton Review, which uses differential pricing in different ZIP codes, charges as little as $6,600 for the premiere test prep course, or as much as $8,400, depending on where you live.
But it’s not based just on income levels.
“The gap remains even for Asians in lower income neighborhoods,” Pro Publica found.
