What States Aren't Saying about the 'X-Percent Solution'.
Selingo, Jeffrey
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n39 pA31-34 Jun 2, 2000
Analyzes plans of some states (California, Florida, and Texas) to admit top high school graduates to public colleges and universities as a way to promote diversity without affirmative action programs. Critics claim such plans exploit educational segregation while doing nothing to improve schools, and may create inequities by denying admission to some achieving students while admitting other underprepared students.
