from "Quota Reform" by Joyce Agho, Tanya Hughes, and Regine Joseph, Class of 1997 in the October 1995 Argo

"Ignorance is the poison which keeps us from getting along with each other. From ignorance, stereotypes, and prejudices are created which then follow children into a school environment. It is the right of every individual to acquire an education and to be given a chance to show that these rights were earned. Political, geographical, and economical situations cause a division which affects the quality of the school systems. For these reasons, people with fewer opportunities become rebellious and search for a scapegoat. The quota system was used to act as a quick remedy to this problem. However, in reality, the quota system only acts as a guise and generates more complications."
