Assembly To Discuss Minority Population At UW

10/17/11 – Members of the Wisconsin Assembly will hold a meeting Monday to discuss a report showing the University of Wisconsin favored minority students over whites. The research indicated white students with better test scores were bypassed. The research was done by a conservative group based in Virginia. The university has said its approach was flawed. State Representative Steve Nass of Whitewater called for the hearing. He’s the Republican chairman of the higher education committee in the Assembly and is a frequent critic of the University of Wisconsin system.
