&tudy: Minority enrollment has
increased in last 10 years

[Getting defensive

The Associated Press
Black and Hispanic high school graduates are get-
wing swept up in the tide of Americans pouring onto
college campuses, with enrollment climbing steadily
for both groups in the 1990s, a study found.
But the rate of blacks finishing high school fell in
the late 1990s, and Hispanics lagged far behind
whites and blacks in getting their high school diplo-
mas, according to the report released last Thursday
by the American Council on Education in Washing-
ton,
The study analyzed Census and Education Depart-
ment figures for 1996-97, the latest available. The
E Fund, the charitable arm of General Electric Co.,
aid for the research.
College attendance at any time among all high
school graduates ages 18 to 24 reached a record high
of 45 percent in 1997. Among whites, the figure was
45 percent, up from 41 percent in 1991; blacks, a
record 40 percent, up from 32 percent in 1991; His-

panics, 36 percent, vs. 33 percent in 1994.
Enrollment for blacks, Hispanics, Asian-Ameri-
cans and American Indians rose 4 percent between
1996 and 1997, the study found. Between 1994 and
1995, their numbers climbed by just under 3 percent.
The study was too soon to gauge the full effect
of California and Texas dropping affirmative action
in college admissions in the two most populous
states.
The University of California system did away with
affirmative action beginning with the undergraduate
class that entered in 1998. After a federal court rul-
ing, Texas ended racial preferences at state schools
beginning with students applying to enter in the fall
of 1997. Washington state voters banned race and
gender criteria in admissions starting in 1999.
- As for the high school graduation figures, the
dropout rate represents "a very serious problem for
African-Americans, for Latinos a catastrophe," said
Gary Orfield, professor of education and social poli-
cy at Harvard University.

Nearly 83 percent of whites ages 18 to 24 had
high school diplomas in 1997, compared with rough-
ly 75 percent of blacks. In 1990, the rate among
blacks was 77 percent.
Whites holding high school diplomas were 8 per-
centage points ahead of blacks in 1997, the widest
gap since 1992.
The gulf between whites and Hispanics was far
greater: Only 62 percent of Hispanics ages 18 to 24
had completed high school in 1997. That was some
improvement, up from about 58 percent the year
before.
Orfield blamed high-stakes testing -- "They don't
pass the test. They get discouraged. They drop out"
- the push to end social promotion and poverty
afflicting both schools and students. Among Hispan-
ics the problem is also a lack of English among
immigrants, he said.
Gwendolyn Cooke at the National Association of
Secondary School Principals blamed teachers with
low expectations and inadequate training.

,'U' halts appeal to study new information

CRAWFORD
Continued from Page IA
LeRoue, who had not commented on
the case, also could not be reached for
comment. LeRoue's attorney in the suit,
William Spurr, did not return several
phone calls placed to his Seattle office.
Henthorn said LeRoue knew well of
is relationship with Crawford, one
hich he calls paternal.
Henthorn previously told the Daily
that he and Crawford became close
after his fourth year of high school.
Crawford moved in with Henthorn
with a letter from Crawford's mother,
Venora Skinner, asking Henthorn to be
Crawford's guardian. Neither Hen-
thorn nor Skinner could ascertain
exactly how Crawford met Henthorn
d when he moved in with him.
The relationship between Crawford

and Henthorn caused the NCAA to
suspend Crawford for six games for
violating an amateurism bylaw that
prohibits present or future NCAA ath-
letes from receiving preferential bene-
fits or services. A source within the
Michigan Athletic Department told the
Daily that the Crawford incident led to
the forced resignation by Athletic
Director Tom Goss on Tuesday.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer
reported yesterday that the NCAA rul-
ing wasn't the first time Crawford and
Henthorn's relationship has led to an
investigation.
Rainier Beach High School in Seat-
tle, which Crawford attended, asked
the Washington Interscholastic Activi-
ties Association during the 1998-99
academic year to rule on the 1993 Jeep
Cherokee that Henthorn gave to Craw-
ford, the Post-Intelligencer reported.

The paper said the WIAA decided
Henthorn was a family friend and not
an agent, thus no action was taken
against him. Rainier Beach officials
asked Crawford not to drive the car.
Michigan coaches could not be
reached for comment as to whether
they knew about the high school ruling
during the recruiting process.
When asked if he knew about the
relationship, Michigan basketball
coach Brian Ellerbe has refused com-
ment. Henthorn said Ellerbe knew of
the situation and had met Henthorn
during the recruiting process.
Michigan, currently in the appeal
process, has stopped its appeal of the
NCAA ruling to study the information
released by the two Seattle papers.
"We have just learned of the infor-
mation. Anytime we receive new
information, we look into it - and we

will do so in this case," University
spokeswoman Julie Peterson said yes-
terday. "The University's appeal has
been delayed while we investigate this
new information."
According to the Post-Intelligencer,
LeRoue worked for Henthorn at Inno-
vative Communications Technologies,
a privately-based telephone company
that offers long distance services for
businesses. She quit her position when
she did not receive repayment on the
loans used to buy Crawford the Blazer
and jewelry in 1998. Her attorney told
the newspaper she had no knowledge
of NCAA rules when Henthorn asked
her to co-sign on the loans.
Crawford missed the third game of
his suspension last night. He is sched-
ule to return, barring a winning appeal
by Michigan, for the Feb. 24 game
against Purdue.

SCHOLARSHIP
Continued from Page1A
annually.
The award was created "to reward
students for demonstrating leadership
and support for LGBT students teach-
ing tolerance and making this a more
comfortable place," said Edith Bletch-
er, scholarship unit coordinator at the
Office of Financial Aid.
The University chooses scholarship
recipients based on recommendations,
an essay and leadership in the LGBT
community.
"Although all the recipients have
been LGBT students, the award is not
restricted to them; they just have to be

doing something in the LGAT com-
munity" said Gay and Lesbian Alum-
ni Society Board Member Mitch
Picklesimer.
The Gay and Lesbian Alumni Soci-
ety grants four different awards.
The Detroit Eagle Gay Community
Scholarship is funded by the S25,000
endowment of Frank Blondale, and is
given biannually.
The Jim Toy scholarship, an
endowment of S5,000, gives prefer-
ence to students of color and is given
in the fall.
The University of Michigan Gay
and Lesbian Alumni Society Scholar-
ship, which has an endowment of
S25,000 is given in the spring.
