"Mismatch: How Affirmative Action Hurts Students It's Intended to Help, and Why Universities Won't Admit It"

Richard Sander; Stuart Taylor

About the Program

Richard Sander, law professor at UCLA and Stuart Taylor, former Supreme Court reporter for The New York Times present their thoughts on affirmative action in prelude to the Supreme Court’s hearing of oral arguments in Fisher v. University of Texas.   The authors report that they agreed with the initial goals of affirmative action but now believe the system hurts more than helps minorities.   Richard Sander and Stuart Taylor speak at the CATO Institute in Washington, D.C.
