Quote Of The Day

In California, which outlawed preferences in 1996, more black and Hispanic students are enrolled in college today than ever before — and more importantly, a higher percentage of them are graduating. In 1995, only 26 percent of black and Hispanic students actually graduated from the UC system; now 51 percent graduate, roughly equal to the white and Asian rate…. It’s about time we ended racial double standards once and for all. In doing so, we will actually improve the chances that more black and Hispanic students will earn college degrees”. —Linda Chavez, chairman of the Center for Equal Opportunity

  • The 51% graduation number is impressive only if the base number of enrollees dropped by less than 50% of the original number. Knowing full well that the UC numbers were down, was there upticks in enrollment in the CS- system, junior colleges and private colleges, or for that matter the lower-tier UC schools?

  • UC’s dont like to give those overall numbers….hard to tell for sure.

    Good questions though.

  • “The 51% graduation number is impressive only if the base number of enrollees dropped by less than 50% of the original number. ”

    If I understand this — and correct me if I’m wrong — you mean that a lower graduation rate with higher enrollees is prefereable to a higher graduation rate with fewer enrollees.

    I don’t think that’s correct. A high number of enrollees who don’t graduate simply take away seats that could have gone to others, who would graduate. Remember, preferences is a zero sum game.
