Peter Wood

On Tuesday NAS president Peter Wood was Pat Morrison's guest on Southern California Public Radio.  He adressed the ways that affirmative action and racial preferences in college admissions can harm both students and schools.  Also appearing on the program as guests were Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the school of law at the University of Irvine, Vikram Amar, professor of law at UC Davis, and Claudia Magana, president of the University of California Students Association.

"Is affirmative action necessary to level the playing field for minorities that have faced, and may still face, discrimination? Or will the inequalities diminish on their own? Is gaining diversity, at the expense of merit, worth it?"
