Top universities such as Harvard have "double standards" in their admissions policies for "favored minorities" such as black students and Hispanic students, an op-ed published Wednesday in The Wall Street Journal argues.
Richard Kahlenberg thinks I’ve been too hasty in dismissing the relevance of fights over affirmative action and brings to bear a bunch of important data that doesn’t, I think, ultimately undermine what I’m trying to say:
Should Harvard be free?
That is the provocative question posed by a slate of candidates running for the Board of Overseers at Harvard, which helps set strategy for the university. They say Harvard makes so much money from its $37.6 billion endowment that it should stop charging tuition to undergraduates.
But they have tied the notion to another equally provocative question: Does Harvard shortchange Asian-Americans in admissions?
