I think Andrew Sullivan is right to say this article in the NY Times is frightening about the push for a new kind of diversity on campuses. Note this quote from the President of Occidental College, in LA:
It is our job as educators to construct conscious
communities in which students and others
spend time, work and play with people unlike
themselves — ethnically, ideologically, politically."
What is the purpose of higher education? Re-education camps? Shouldnt people be allowed into college because of the academic qualiity of their high school work? This is amazing stuff.
