Diversity Sale at UC Berkeley

I did not realize there was a bill in CA to legally allow consider race, ethnicity and gender in student admissions.

'Diversity bake sale' at UC Berkeley stirs criticism - LA Times

The comments from an article on SF Gate are a good read (429)

Thought provoking the comment that suggested Asians should have been $3 (UC Berkeley is major Asian, but the population of CA is around 10%).

My two cents:
  1. I believe admissions should not be not based on race.  When you have race based admissions, Asians lose.
  2. Yes, many public schools that feed into the UC's have challenges and do not do a great job in teaching.
  3. Yes, there is a horrible problem with public schools that do a horrible job of educating non Asian and White, Minority students. I view this as a huge racial issue.  60% drop out rate at some 100% minority Schools!  This wrong.
  4. I agree with this quote from Albert Einstein: Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
  5. And no, I don't have a magic solution to fix US public schools. 
  6. Good video to watch for CA residents - First to Worst, about how CA's schools have degraded.
  7. And yes, I am worried about the CA higher education system increasing cost.  I view it as a crown jewel in CA and, words fail me.
