Place, Not Race
Sheryll Cashin talked about her book, Place, Not Race: A New Vision of Opportunity in America, in which she argues that affirmative action policies in education do little to help the disadvantaged. She said that these policies should be replaced with affirmative action admission policies based on where a child grows up instead of the color of his or her skin. Professor Cashin spoke at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies in Washington, DC. close
