Getting Around Proposition 209

Heather MacDonald has written a lengthy and interesting article on the effects of California's Proposition 209, which bans gender and race preferences, on the University of California. Much of her article is about how the UC schools are attempting to circumvent Prop. 209 and employ affirmative action in less obvious ways.

Among other things, she discusses UCLA's plans to implement "holistic" admissions methods due to all-time-low enrollment by blacks.

It would apparently be too much to ask (and too logical) to instead work on solutions for raising achievement by black students...
