Place Not Race for Affirmative Action

The Sound of Ideas

Affirmative action based on race is widely used for college admissions. But Georgetown University law professor Sheryll Cashin argues that perhaps that's an outdated model, and suggests that instead, affirmative action should be based on geographic location. That's her argument in her new book, "Place not Race." But not everyone agrees race based affirmative action is outdated, and some say it's still very much necessary.
