I have, or will have shortly, an essay on Minding The Campus on the lessons of last week’s vote in Washington state rejecting affirmative action — more accurately, rejecting the attempt to repeal the state’s 1998 prohibition of affirmative action — that I initially discussed two weeks ago in A Duplicitous Attempt to Rescue Affirmative Action.
As I write early Monday morning there is a version up on MTC, but I’m not providing a link because it’s an earlier, unrevised, and now incorrect version. I’ll provide a link once the correct version appears.
UPDATE! 11 November 9:10am
Washington State Voters Reject Affirmative Action, Again, corrected, is now up on Minding The Campus.
