While there is no mention of restricting tutors by race, Berkeley apparently intends to offer its tutoring services only to students belonging to approved races. The Federal government is so pleased with the racial outcomes that Berkeley has achieved so far that it gave Berkeley an award:
National Institutes of Health (NIH) Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program
Seeking UCB Science and Engineering Students to tutor students in the following
Berkeley-equivalent classes starting Spring 2012 semester
CHEM 1A, CHEM 1B, CHEM 3A/B (organic), BIO 1A, BIO 1B,
PHYS 7A, PHYS 7B, MATH 1A, MATH 1B
Tutors will be working with community college students who are preparing to be competitive transfer applicants to the University of California. Students being tutored are participants in the UCB NIH Bridges to Baccalaureate (B2B) program. The program’s goal is to increase the number of people from African American, Hispanic, Native American and Pacific Islander backgrounds in biomedical fields. [Emph. added]
In announcing the award, U.S. Undersecretary of Education Martha J. Kanter declared "it is vital that we increase degree completion among Latinos.”
Californians passed Proposition 209 to outlaw racial discrimination in education. Prop 209 does allow for racial discrimination if, as in this case, it is needed "to establish or maintain eligibility for any federal program, where ineligibility would result in a loss of federal funds to the state."
In 1865, the abolitionists won the Civil War but, since then, the segregationists seem to be winning the peace.
