Should student activism influence college admission decisions?

The question of how disciplinary records are used in the college admission process came to the forefront following the recent school shooting in Parkland, Florida. The tragedy spurred an increase in student-led protests, and in some cases, student activists faced disciplinary actions at school.

“In our work, we must ask how these actions will affect college admission decisions,” the episode description notes.
