Affirmative Action in college
    #2044471 - 10/26/03 12:45 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

My opinion on why affirmative action in college environments
hurts the educational process:


I have gone to college and I can say with certainty that when you
admit students who are slower than others, you bring down the quality
of the education in the institution. The professors must make an
effort to slow down the learning so that that the dumber kids can
keep up, which in turn lessens the quality and intensity of the
education for the smarter kids. Or, if the professors do not slow
down the learning, they must spend exhorbinant amounts of time trying
to help the slower students. To put it bluntly; allowing dumb kids
into a college hurts the quality of education that is offered to all.

If I was an employer looking to hire, I would be less likely to hire
someone from a university that practises affirmative action. I would
worry that that person had been exposed to an academic environment
where the education had not been optimal, thus making that person
less qualified. If the prospective employee was a member of
a minority group, I would worry if that person had been accepted to
the university just because of the color of their skin instead of
academic ability, thus making it less likely that they have the
appropriate skill and knowledge to succeed in the work
environment. I wouldn't want to hire people who were given a free
ride and who were never made to demonstrate the required academic
ability that was needed to succeed in the college environment. I
wouldn't want to hire dumb people.

Any thoughts on this?

Right on the money.

To those who disagree, you can have the affirmative action med school grads. I want the person with the best skills and grades working on me.

Nice job RF.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

yes exactly, it's either everyone slows down or the "slow" kids are forced to take remedial classes, which inevitably ends up segregating the student body, which of course defeats the purpose of affirmitive action. I'm against affirmitive action as it stands now. I could see myself supporting it but there needs to be some changes. it should be about giving an opportunity to intelligent students willing to work hard, not about installing dumb kids in college by "bumping" test scores or setting racial quotas for admission.

In general, I don't believe it is right to give something to somebody
that has not earned it, merely because of the color of their skin.
To me that is racism.

I believe that it is quite apparent that slow kids hurt the
educational environment in college.

And when a white person advances in the workplace and a black
person doesn't, a lawsuit is not far behind(even if the white person
deserved the promotion and the black person is an idiot). Race
is such a touchy issue nowadays and affirmative action has only
inflamed it.

The issue between males and females in college is also out of hand. Having the ratio of girls to boys enrolled be the same as in sports is ludacris. Ive seen girls offered full scholarships for sports they had no experence in; mainly rowing.
