Diversity and Its Contradictions.
Baez, Benjamin
Academe, v86 n5 p43-47 Sep-Oct 2000
Emphasizing the value of difference may protect affirmative action while reinforcing inequalities. While education shows great concern for multiple perspectives, it uses diversity to preserve affirmative action. Though research indicates diversity has educational value, its use of prevailing academic practices reinforces the status quo. The main contradiction of educational diversity is the need to simultaneously reinforce and question social differences. (SM)
