No ideological diversity in higher education

Higher education’s mantra is diversity. But that means only racial diversity – not ideological (“Students in Supreme Court’s Harvard discrimination case,” New York Post, Aug. 3).

Ever since Grutter v. Bollinger in 2003, colleges have been allowed to use race as one of many factors in granting admission to applicants.  However, in reality they have used the high court’s decision to establish illegal racial quotas. That’s why Asian applicants have been discriminated against. 

I believe that admission to colleges and universities should be based primarily on merit.  If that results in Asians or any other racial group predominating, so be it.
