Maybe, because of the quota rule, however most minorities are caught up in life situations that keep them from attending and staying, and have family responsibilities. Alot of minorities may have issues with entrance exams, or accessibility to prep-classes that prepares them for the University environment and this may be a challenge to them. Also its the culture of the institution that may insight fear of entering because of comfortability, Finally, it could be the entrance standards of that institution that keeps minorities from getting into a University.
The Impact of Affirmative Action:
:"Affirmative action policies have resulted in increases in the representation of women and minorities across all levels of employment in the United States and within organizations that were once exclusively male." (Murrell and Jones, 1995)
"Affirmative action has led to higher employment participation rates, increased earnings, and gains in educational attainment for women and minorities. " (Murrell and Jones, 1995)
and as long as there is any kind of racism this question needs to be asked first:
"Does present-day racism justify maintaining affirmative action?" (Dovidio and Gaertner, 1995).
