Forty-two states in the U.S. have affirmative action laws in place, but California voters recently rejected the idea for a second time with the defeat of Proposition 16. To find out what this means for public colleges and universities, Valley Edition Host Kathleen Schock spoke with Dania Matos, associate chancellor and chief diversity officer at UC Merced, Andrea Venezia, professor of public policy and administration and executive director of the Education Insights Center at Sacramento State, and Elisha Smith Arrillaga, executive director of The Education Trust-West.

Kathleen Schock is the host of Valley Edition. In the show, Kathleen and the Valley Public Radio news team explore issues that matter to the residents of Central California through engaging conversations and in-depth reporting.
