The Bakke Case: A Personal Response

By Nina Cardin

Eugene Borowitz, February 3, 1978

Reacting to the 1977 Supreme Court decision University of California v. Bakke, which clarified the ways in which race could be considered in college admissions, the author opines that federal funding and full compliance with affirmative action standards should be contingent on the type, manner and amount of remedial and special training programs each institution provides. This version of affirmative action would both address the needs of people who have had fewer opportunities and avoid discriminatory practices, she argues.
