From the NYT, a story of the Chinese emulating the grand tradition of Ted Kennedy at Harvard:
15 Chinese Accused of Using Test-Taking Impostors for College Entrance ExamsA few years ago my wife was exercising in the gym at Los Angeles Valley Community College when 40 young Chinese-speakers are led in by a tour guide who explains to them why they should come from China to go to Valley Juco. It had to be some some kind of immigration scam because Valley isn’t exactly Stanford. Even in Red China they’ve got colleges as good as Valley.

BOSTON — Fifteen Chinese nationals have been accused of cheating the college entrance examination system with a scheme that involved fake passports and test-taking impostors, according to a federal indictment unsealed on Thursday.
The 35-count indictment, which was returned on May 21 in the Western District of Pennsylvania, sketches out a complex scheme in which certain individuals are accused of paying impostors using fake Chinese passports to take college entrance exams, mostly at testing sites in the Pittsburgh area, including the SAT and the Test of English as a Foreign Language, or Toefl, in the hope of using them to gain admission to American colleges.
David J. Hickton, the United States attorney for the District of Western Pennsylvania, said some of the defendants were admitted to universities around the country, which would have helped them qualify for student visas necessary for entrance into the country. “If they are in fact not supposed to be students of the American college because their admission was fraudulently obtained, then their visa has been fraudulently obtained as well,” Mr. Hickton said in an interview.
The people charged paid nearly $6,000 in some cases, the indictment said. …
Suspicions about international students cheating on American university entrance exams have swirled in recent years. Last fall, for example, test scores of thousands of students from China and South Korea were temporarily withheld while test officials looked into suspicions of cheating. The Educational Testing Service, which administers the SAT, reviewed the scores and decided not to release some of them to colleges because of concerns about their validity.
According to the Institute of International Education, China sends more students to study in the United States than does any other country; 31 percent of the international students in the United States during the 2013-14 academic year came from China. That year, 274,439 Chinese students studied in the United States, an increase of 16.5 percent over the previous year.
The indictment says the conspiracy went on for four years, from 2011 to earlier this year.This is undoubtedly the fault of white people, probably for not being able to tell Chinese people apart.
