2) According to Rudolf Lockhard, a defender of private schooling: “…it would be wrong to think that the success of pupils from the independent sector is necessarily a break on social mobility: as has been shown, the sector educates a diverse range of pupils, helping many of them with their fees. Nor should independent schools be seen as the source of the problem of social immobility. Instead, they set an example for all schools to follow.” Excerpt from Lockhard, R., E. (2009). Independent Schools and Social Mobility. Independent Schools Council Bulletins, p.14.



3) According to Professor Michael Eric Dyson “If race has functioned as a de-merit in so many decades, indeed centuries, it has to at least for a while function as a merit, in order to take into account the very deleterious obstacles that prevented the flourishing of an entire group of people. … So, affirmative action is not handing out to somebody who doesn’t deserve something, it is acknowledging that we have prevented the flourishing of these particular group of people in the past, and seek to have a more just society by means of this legal instrument.” Verbatim extract from Professor Michael Eric Dyson interview - SCOTUS Michigan Affirmative Action Ban (April 23rd, 2014)
