Young America’s Foundation Spokesman Spencer Brown released the following statement in response to the Department of Education’s announcement regarding racial preferences in higher education:

“Young America’s Foundation applauds Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for the Department of Education’s decision to roll back Obama-era guidance on racial preferences in higher education. For too long, leftist administrators have hidden their truly discriminatory actions behind a cloak of so-called diversity.

Too often we see that the schools with the most aggressive racial preferences have the weakest race relations. Through bold conservative leadership, Secretary DeVos and the Department of Education are working to create a system where even our schools can treat all students equally.”
