Affirmative action is on the ballot in California. If voters approve proposition 16 public universities and colleges will be able to consider race and gender as factors when reviewing student applications. California schools have been banned from doing that since 1996. The vote comes amid a racial reckoning in higher education and science reporter Kevin Stark with science desk joins me now. Hello. So it's been almost 25 years since California voters banned affirmative action and higher education admissions. How have science class has been affected? I interviewed several stem students and faculty who describe a lack of diversity in science departments. One student described feeling unsure of herself in computer science courses because her professors Most of the students in the class where men Very few were women. I spoke with a professor who teaches computer engineering and communications courses, and she said many of her stem students share a set of experiences and worldviews. Her social science courses are much more diverse. Another student, I spoke with Serena Nolan, a black senior at UC San Diego. She studies cognitive and behavioral neuroscience, she says many black students don't feel like they have a place in stem, and that's why she supports affirmative action and prop 16. It increases diversity by allowing raise to be considered. It's not like there's a quarter that needs to be filled. That is a thought and Proactiv for freeing of last students that needs to be allowed. You know, I should also say that the U. C. A California State University, California community colleges, and several student groups is all support this measure. So what is Theophile Metin Action Ban meant for the sciences overall? Well at U. C. Just looking university wide. It's students, Latino students, black students and Native American students are underrepresented. Although that gap has closed in recent years, especially for Latino students. His gap is more pronounced in science departments and graduate and faculty positions. Economists who have studied the impact of affirmative action bands in California and nationally. Found. It is harmed black and Latino students, especially in stem and this is what economists call this the stem penalty. So, Kevin what our opponents of proposition 16 saying about all this? They argue that affirmative action isn't needed and in some instances could actually hurt students from underrepresented groups. They say students who are admitted into elite schools like U. C. Berkeley, or you could struggle if they're admitted based on non academic factors. This is what they call the mismatch theory. You know, economists have studied this theory. I would say the literature on this is mixed. Opponents also point to the fact that the number of black and Latino students at UC schools has grown since California banned affirmative action. And and Maura of these students are also graduating college. It sounds like those students were doing pretty well. What is you see? Say, Well, the UC regents say the affirmative action ban has hurt their ability to recruit diverse candidates. You know, looking at this UC system, the university system has grown rapidly in the past two decades. So you see is more diverse. At the growth of underrepresented students is still lagging behind the graduation rate for these students in California high schools, But nobody's saying that affirmative action is a silver bullet, right? I think there's no question that the debate around affirmative action Khun B. Very by in area, you know, affirmative action. Good. Yes. Affirmative action Bad, But no, The idea behind affirmative action policies is that it increases choices for students. Who have been marginalized and in recent years also has been a method for which universities Khun Khun, try and mirror the population of the state that they live in. So economists, they say The key question is. How can universities design training and support to ensure that all students that are admitted are successful? Right. Okay.
