Is the Texas affirmative action plan the right direction for education.
The first college admission slots are filled based on race.
The Univ of Texas stated, "the program is necessary to provide the kind of diverse educational experience the high court has previously endorsed. The rest of its slots go to students who are admitted based on their high school class rank, without regard to race."
Once again the Supreme Court has aligned by party affilation.
Less that 50% of black students graduate university. To be fair that number is likely driven by the atheltes on sports scholarships. However at Black Universities/Colleges the graduation rate is over 63%.
So the question is that if a student is selected by race ... not academic standing ... have we condemed some to failure .. should admissions be blind to race, sex, etc ... and selection conducted in a blind process based on academic standing, class rank, and college test scores. After all the brain is grey.
