Table: Taking Affirmative Action


The Business-Higher Education Forum, a group of companies and universities, wants to help schools circumvent court restrictions on affirmative action. It's advocating:

THE 10% RULE

Accept a top percentage of students at each high school into public colleges, vs. previous plans that applied percentages statewide.

"WHOLE PERSON" ADMISSIONS

Admit students based on everything from after-school work experience to socioeconomic background, not just test scores.

FINANCIAL AID

Push Congress to boost financial aid for needy students, who are disproportionately minority.

THIRD-PARTY OUTREACH

Pull nonprofits that help minorities under one umbrella for better outreach and to pool aid for potential college students.
