Most Americans Say Colleges Shouldn't Consider Race
from Inside Higher Ed
Seven percent of Americans believe that race or ethnicity should be a major factor in admissions decisions, and 19 percent believe it should be a minor factor. Nearly three-fourths (73 percent) of a representative sample of Americans said that race or ethnicity should not be a factor, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. Solid majorities of white, black, Latino and Asian Americans shared that view. The finding is consistent with others but is the first national survey on the topic since the ending of the trial in a lawsuit against Harvard University charging that its affirmative action programs discriminate against Asian American applicants.
