Video: Affirmative action vs. race-neutral admissions, a case study
The Supreme Court has banned colleges from using race as criteria for admissions. Essentially ending the 50-year run of affirmative action programs. California banned public colleges like Berkeley and UCLA from using race in their admissions in the 1990s. Since then, a large study measuring the academic success and earnings of students before and after the ban has shown what effects “race-neutral” admissions policies have on minority students. WSJ explains how affirmative action worked, why the Supreme Court struck it down — and what we can learn from California about how higher education might look without it.
