About Joanne


  1. Graduating with a STEM degree is hard for any student, regardless of race. These degrees (associates or higher) require a lot of preparation in high school, and lots of hard work in college. In courses which have a high technical skill, many students will find out that ‘just getting by’ in high school won’t cut it in these programs (most of which are limited entry).

  2. The differences in average IQ between racial subgroups make this a proposition of doubtful feasibility.
