Racial and Ethnic Preferences in Higher Education.
National Forum, v79 n1 p32-35 Win 1999
The real question behind affirmative action in higher education is whether the form of racial discrimination it represents is worth the improved access it provides. Three arguments favoring affirmative action in this context are that affirmative action (1) is needed to keep college admissions officers from discriminating against minorities; (2) remedies past wrongs; (3) is effective in promoting diversity.
