|Equality At Harvard (Or Not)||September 20, 2005|
Harvard Law School just reversed itself, announcng that it would after all allow military recruiters on campus even though the Pentagon has refused to abandon its "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy to assuage the academic conscience. (HatTip to Howard Bashman)
Meanwhile, university president Laurence Summers announced that Harvard would file an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to invalidate the Solomon Amendment, which cuts off funds to colleges that won't allow military recruiters.
“The Law School and the University share a deep and enduring commitment to the principles of nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for all persons,” Summers said.Silly me. All this time I thought Harvard gave some people preferences based on their race, which violates both the principles of nondiscrimination and the principle of equal opportunity for all persons.
