Affirmative Action in Higher Education.
Pottinger, J. Stanley
In the field of higher education, more and more cases of race and sex discrimination are going to court. This speech indicates why this may be happening, why the trend is a disturbing one, and how cases can be gotten out of the courts. Costs, time loss, and the personal degradation of the litigation process are cited, and the complex problems that lead to litigation are discussed. Emphasized is the need for a balance between objective criteria and subjective decisions regarding hiring, promoting, and firing. (LBH)
