"Place, Not Race: A New Vision of Opportunity in America"

Sheryll Cashin

About the Program

Sheryll Cashin argues that affirmative action policies in education do little to help the truly disadvantaged.  She says that these policies should be replaced with affirmative action admission policies based on where a child grows up instead of the color of his or her skin.  Prof. Cashin spoke at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies in Washington, DC.
