Hidden segregation ? The limits of geographically based affirmative action

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Using a formal model, a data set on Texas high school students, and admission figures from Texas A&M University, the A. demonstrates that under such plans, racial diversity at the university level is dependent on racial segregation at the high school level. Despite the effort to use geographic criteria to achieve racial diversity, there may simply be no adequate proxy for racial identity other than racial identity. Such plans hide the political and social activities that maintain racial segregation, and treat segregation as a natural and inevitable condition that does not violate principles of legal equality
