Student leaders at Oxford University have signed on to a letter blasting Chancellor Lord Patten due to a statement he made regarding quotas for BME — black and minority ethnic — students.

The Daily Telegraph had reported that the chancellor had hinted Oxford “cannot accept more ethnic minority students without eroding standards.”

What Patten had actually said, however: “I don’t support quotas at universities. Nobody will explain to me how you can make a system of quotas work while retaining the highest admissions standards.”
