“Please stand on the side of fairness, justice, and simple decency, and affirm the hopes and dreams of young people, by eliminating any reference to contact with the police or criminal courts from the Common Application. The box is blatantly discriminatory and has no relevance to the task of evaluating the records or the future potential of applicants; it undermines and distorts the meaning of education in a free society. Nothing is lost and much is gained by banning the box.”
