Abstract:

Shameful Admissions takes us behind the scenes of one of our nation's most prestigious public institutions and gives us the inside story on why and how we blame affirmative action for creating an educational system that no longer delivers. Browne-Miller's expose on this controversial topic not only explains the inner workings, stresses, and strains of higher education in this country, it also sets out solutions to the challenge of preserving equal educational opportunity for all students. According to Browne-Miller, the assumption that the rebalancing of social inequalities can be accomplished during four years of college is ludicrous. The affirmative action admission, contracting, and hiring policies neither caused nor created the real challenges posed by an increasingly diverse student population. In fact, they have resulted in a new kind of stereotyping, cultural clustering, and discrimination in the classroom and have distracted us from the more central issue of a fragmented and overextended university system. Browne-Miller urges us to look beyond the affirmative action debate to ask the critical questions: Should everyone go to college? Is a college degree all it's cracked up to be? And she maps out a radical revision of higher education that transforms the present system, offers wider and more diverse opportunity, and, at the same time, preserves the central intellectual traditions we hold dear.
