39. We are debating this because serious efforts to provide equal educational

 

opportunity to blacks and Hispanic students would require a lot of money and would target early education. People are not willing to do that, and so we try to bandage things up at the level of college admissions. Granted, grades and SAT scores are not the only relevant measures of ability, but the bottom line is that universities are not only interested in ability when it comes to admissions. They have diversity goals that mean that students who are more capable are sometimes not admitted to make room for students who are less capable but help the university achieve its diversity goals.
