Well, yes according to Christina Hoff Sommers. In a great piece last week in the Washington Post, she described how the Obama Administration is now applying Title IX regulations (those which essentially try to force women into varsity level sports, which always leads to the guys losing spots on their varsity teams) to college science programs. There is only one problem: inspite of mass recruitment efforts, only about 20 percent of hard science courses in college are made up of women.
So, once again to make things “equal” this could have the effect of fewer science spots available to men.
Please notice that the Obama administration is not trying to equalize ratios between men and women in English or education departments which are overwhelmingly female.
