Sara Club House Book

Sara Carter joined Sean Hannity to discuss the release of her brand new children’s book Joining the Amazing Club Awesome Sauce as well as the incredible situation of 21-year-old Jack Teixeira leaking classified Pentagon documents.

Sara has taken her passion for reporting on the southern border crisis to conceptualize the importance of rules and laws for children in order to keep them safe.

Sean Hannity tells Carter he is impressed she was able to find time to write the book considering she is quite literally sent all over the world to report for both Sean’s television and radio shows.

“Well that’s true, Sean” Carter responds, “but a lot of that reporting is what led me to doing this book for children because our world is so upside down.”

“Our children are suffering and kind of losing their way.” Carter cites critical research theory and lack of education in our public schools as examples.

Speaking of youth losing their way, Hannity turns the conversation to 21-year-old Jack Teixeira who leaked the classified Pentagon documents. The Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested Teixeira Thursday and he was arraigned and charged with violating the Espionage Act on Friday.

“Sean it’s extremely dangerous” says Carter. The lives of the men and women on the ground “are in direct threat right now.” Carter reminds listeners she has covered the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and her husband is retired special forces. “Secrecy is of the utmost importance in their world.”

Harvard Reinstates Standardized Testing Requirement for Admissions

Harvard University announcement it will reverse its test-optional policy and reinstate standardized testing as a requirement for admission. The move has stirred a contentious debate within the academic community. Effective for applicants seeking entry in the fall of 2025, Harvard College will mandate the submission of either SAT or ACT scores, with limited exceptions for circumstances hindering access to these exams.

Hoekstra contends that standardized tests provide crucial predictive insights into a student’s potential for success in higher education and beyond. By reinstating the testing requirement, Harvard seeks to gather more comprehensive data, particularly beneficial for identifying talent across diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.

Proponents of the move, like Harvard Kennedy School’s political economy professor David J. Deming, emphasize the universality of standardized tests, arguing that they offer a level playing field for all applicants. Deming underscores the accessibility of these tests compared to other metrics like personal essays, which may favor privileged students with greater resources.

However, the decision has sparked criticism from those who argue that standardized tests perpetuate inequities in admissions. Critics point to studies, such as those conducted by Harvard economists Raj Chetty and others, which highlight disparities in access to advanced courses and extracurricular opportunities among students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The controversy surrounding Harvard’s policy shift reflects broader concerns within higher education about equity, diversity, and inclusion. While standardized testing may offer a standardized measure of academic aptitude, it also raises questions about its ability to accurately assess a student’s potential in light of systemic educational disparities.
