Actress Lori Loughlin and  her husband Mossimo Giannulli and 14 other parents recently were charged with money laundering in the college admissions bribery scandal. Loughlin and Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to have their two daughters enrolled at USC as crew recruits.

I found this really unfair to kids today, many of whom are working their hardest to get into a college of their choice.  Many are not getting accepted because the competition – which should be based on individual achievement – already is stiff.  Other kids don’t even get the chance to go to college because they can’t afford it. To read about wealthy parents cheating and bribing to put their kids ahead of other, more deserving students, is aggravating.  This shows how money can control anything and everything in our world.

I’m glad that our justice system is not failing, and that someone is finally getting charged for this type of cheating, instead of getting off free as seems to happen too often. I hope these parents learned their lesson, and that something like this doesn’t happen again.
