Minorities and the Egalitarian-Meritocratic Values Conflict in American Higher Education: New Answers for an Old Problem.
Shom, Charles L.; Spooner, Sue
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v19 n4 p182-90 Oct 1991
Notes that, although institutions of higher education support egalitarianism and meritocracy, few have developed operational practices to reconcile them. Focuses on development of noncognitive predictors of college success and the ascendancy of the urban university as two developments that may be useful in accommodating values of equity of opportunity and reward for meritorious performance.
