Examples of Sander in a Sentence

  1. Walther Collection curator Brian Wallis:

    What's interesting about Sander as a touchstone is he's not really one or the other, you can take the very same picture, and find a very positive social statement or a very critical one, depending on how you look at it.

  2. Carrie Severino:

    What Justice Scalia is referring to is the 'mismatch theory' popularized by Stuart Taylor and Richard Sander in their book, the idea is that if a student is admitted to a school they are not academically prepared for then they will not perform up to their own potential. This is a theory -- contested of course -- but I don't want people to get the idea that it means that all black students are not as smart as white students, or even that they are not as well prepared across the board.
