Toward Equal Educational Opportunity [microform] : Affirmative Admissions Programs at Law and Medical Schools / Larry Riedman, Ed

Description [Washington, D.C.]] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1978 
55 p. 
Summary

Affirmative admissions programs at law and medical schools are examined in the context of the national commitments to equal opportunity and to the eradication of the remaining effects of discrimination. A discussion is presented of the history of past discrimination in education, particularly higher education, and some of its continuing effects, including the underrepresentation of minorities in the legal and medical professions. The traditional admissions process at law and medical schools is examined with respect to both its numerical, objective, or quantitative standards and its subjective or nonquantitative criteria. The problems that gave rise to the need for affirmative admissions programs and the nature and effect of such programs in comparison to traditional admissions programs are reviewed. Appendices present the United States Commission on Civil Rights "Statement on Affirmative Action" and a summary of the position of the Carnegie Council on Policy Studies in Higher Education on "The Relevance of Race in Admissions."
