Supremes Take School Race Case



Text  



Today the Supreme Court accepted another big case for next term.  Actually, there are two cases — Parents Involved v . Seattle School District and Meredith v. Jefferson City Board of Education – each addressing when public schools may consider race in school assignment decisions.  The first case concerns the Seattle school district’s diversity program, in which race is used as a “tie-breaker” if there are more applicants than openings for a given school.  The second concerns the use of race in pupil assignments in a Kentucky school district that was previosuly subject to a desegregation order.  More details here .
