How did the concept of affirmative action begin in our history?  What brought about the idea that certain students should be favored in college acceptances over others more qualified? Those questions initiated Mr. Murray Sragow’s discussion of affirmative action to our Debate Club on Tuesday. Mr. Sragow discussed the Supreme Court cases that set precedence, and the current case that is pending. He discussed the idea of diversity of a student body and the benefits of such diversity in a student’s education.  Mr. Sragow serves as MTA’s Director of College Guidance, as well as an instructor of history. He opened the minds of the debaters to challenge conventional ideas. Debaters will debate this topic at the upcoming debate at Central.
