Will Supreme Court end affirmative action in college admissions?
The U.S. Supreme Court is expected soon to issue a
ruling on affirmative action in college admissions, in a case called Fisher v.
University of Texas at Austin. Plaintiff Abigail Fisher, a white woman denied
admission to UT, is challenging the constitutionality of UT’s consideration of
race and ethnicity as a factor in assembling an undergraduate class. A ruling
could come as early as Thursday morning.
