The Status and Future of Minority Group Representation in the Graduate and Professional Programs.
Bailey, Merrill-Jean
Minority representation in the graduate and professional schools is not in parity with the proportion of minorities in the overall population at this point in the history of American higher education. There are definite reasons for the lack of participation, reasons that have a profound philosophical, sociological, and economic basis. These factors have helped to crystalize American thought, have relegated minorities to a barricaded position and predetermined status in society, and have now culminated in the rhetorical fervor surrounding the Allan Bakke case. Those who are in favor of affirmative action policies should make their support known. (Author/EB)
