What's the better way for schools to handle foreign students?

Some proposals have essentially quotas by race, which has some obvious flaws.

How does one maintain the overall national culture/identity while still not admitting students based on race or country or origin, or extreme differences in tuition for the latter?

    At least it's a good thing in Washington there's not that many schools people really care about other than UW so not too big of an impact. Now probably a lot more Asian kids in Washington will just go out of state.

      Lol, I would love to see schools in Bellevue/Redmond with only 20% Asian, and 20% black and 20% Hispanic.
      What's the idea, send Asian kids on a 2h commute all over the state and find blacks and Latino kids under the rocks?

  • They lost stellar candidates because they couldn't consider race? B.S. If they were stellar then there is no need to consider race. The only stellar candidates you miss out on are the ones you reject because you consider their race.

    Considering race leads to discrimination for the sake of diversity (in other words rejecting Asians because they are "over represented").

      But how do you keep the culture from being overtaken by new one on a local level?

      (Assuming you don't want the community to assimilate to the new culture)

    To be clear, the law says nothing about foreign vs domestic students as you can bias based on that factor already. The law is about whether you can bias based on race and gender. As someone with sons, Iā€™m glad to hear they will start giving boys an advantage to get back to 50/50 ratio (right?)
