Can adding neighborhood Adversity Scores to SAT's help our young people?

 

The Huffington Post article "SAT to Add 'Adversity Score' to Reflect Student's Privilege," by Hayley Miller, reports on the 15 factor neighborhood score that may be reported with a student's SAT's when applying to college. 

The inclusion of community-level adversity with the SAT is conceptually a major step towards acknowledging the environmental impacts that can affect SAT outcomes.

Philadelphia is a region with one of the highest densities of colleges and universities as well as the seat of decades of struggles about access to successful primary and secondary education, which paves the way to a strong, well-educated workforce.  Are there ways that adding this adversity score to SAT's can help in a community like Philadelphia?
