Title

Article "Colleges Hope for Red Tape 'Revolt'"

Description

This article is the last in a three-part series that was taken from a report by Editorial Projects for Education Inc., that addresses problems faced by colleges in dealing with increasing laws and regulations enforced by Congress. According to Wolk, Congress puts certain regulations in place to prevent racial or sexual discrimination, yet the laws they put in place accomplish a wider set of regulations than described. Wolk says these regulations are often hastily passed and fail to consider the expenses and time taken to revise the institutions that fall under them. In addition, institutions claim that these regulations are often controversial; in some cases they are being encouraged to attract minority students and in others they are accused of practicing reverse discrimination. This process of regulation is tainting the relationship between many universities and the federal government.
