"AA actually hurts thost students it's supposed to help." Interesting.
I listened to the clip you included, and that's what the NPR lady said. I later read the release, which is more inconclusive in its findings.
I think that the data should be made available for statistical analysis. It seems like it would be in both sides' interest to know if there are problems with the current system. I found the response from the NAACP kind of surprising. If they believe the current system is not comprehensive enough then knowing the system is flawed fits in with that.
I would love to see more actual hard data on this topic. That said, I don't think Lempert will like it.
