The obsession with racial balance on college campuses has resulted in lower admission standards and lower grading standards (“Black Students Need Better Schools, Not Lower Standards,” The Wall Street Journal, Feb. 8). Diversity, equity and inclusion are today’s goals, with standards never mentioned.
By pandering to calls to increase the percentage of Blacks in colleges and universities, we don’t help them. China and India correctly recognize the importance of meritocracy for their futures. That’s why they are going to leave us in the dust. If we genuinely want to help Blacks, then improve the schools they attend.
