Argument: Minority schools disprove perceived value of diversity
Extended arguments and supporting evidence
- Spelman College is a distinguished black women's college in Atlanta that provides a particularly important counter-point to the notion that diversity in schools is universally desirable.
- Diversity and Affirmative Action: The State of Campus and Opinion. Stanley Rothman, Seymour Martin Lipset, and Neil Nevitte. Their findings show an inverse relationship between the number of minorities on campus and the favorable ratings students give of the quality of their education. Students on majority-white campuses are more negative about the quality of their education the more blacks the campuses enroll. Taken at face value, this study does more than indict affirmative action; it provides a reason for resegregation!
