  •  Military recruiters have had to lower standards (6+ / 0-)

    to fill all their available positions with men, with more low GPA HS students/dropouts being taken than is ideal.

    By opening up the recruiting pool to the other half of the population, recruiters will now be in a much better position to fill those spots with quality recruits.

    Rather than lowering standards, this will actually allow them to raise standards.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.
