Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Prior to 1954, when Brown vs the Board of Education irreversibly changed the hue of the nation's schools from "colored and white" to "integrated," there was no need for special admission criteria for minority students. Due to prejudice and high tuition costs, less than 1% of Black students attended white colleges. Those who did attend white colleges were admitted under traditional admissions criteria (Thomas, 1981).
