Re: Diversity Has Educational Benefits


Roger — Good work in skewering that silly “research.” Sadly, there is no doubt that the diversity zealots will trumpet this “study” as proof that we need to work harder and harder to make student bodies “diverse.”

The same thing happens all the time. One example is the often-debunked study done in the mid-90s purporting to show that increasing the minimum wage doesn’t have any unemployment effects. Leftists who are intent on raising the minimum wage never hesitate to cite it as having proved that increasing the minimum wage is a good thing, even though no sensible person could possibly come to that conclusion.
