Rationalizing Regression in Racial Equity: James Traub Reports on Proposition 209 in California. Article Review.
Dentler, Robert A.
Equity & Excellence in Education, v32 n2 p73-75 Sep 1999
James Traub, in his report for the "New York Times Magazine," suggests that some "adaptive" techniques, such as cascading applicants to other colleges and particular administrative approaches, will provide the benefits of affirmative action without its drawbacks. This is a misleading message. Adaptive techniques will not offset the lack of quality opportunities for minority students. (SLD)
