Supreme Court Ruling: Yesterday's Supreme Court ruling in UoT on Affirmative Action prompted some to claim victory, others to argue the fight continues on to another day. The 7-1 ruling was the lower courts need to explore race based admissions to college & universities. That was one part of the story. For me the real focus should have been the original case at the University of Texas brought by white student Abigail Fisher. Fisher argued her failure to get into the university was due to her race - her whiteness. In fact, the evidence revealed she would not have been admitted because she lacked the grades. What is unsaid for me about this case is that Fisher sought an elevation of her white privilege to get into UoT and a discrimination against those who were qualified but did not share her hue. Also, news that Ms Fisher was recruited by a man called Edward Blum from the 'American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy'. Blum is a 61-year-old former stockbroker, who matches plaintiffs with lawyers and bel ...
The Supreme Court on Monday imposed a stricter test for Affirmative Action in college admissions — ruling that schools must prove “no workable race-neutral alternatives would produce the educational benefits of diversity.” By a 7-1 vote, with one justice recusing herself, the court sent a case about the University of Texas’ admissions policy back to a federal appeals court for review — the Supreme Court’s equivalent of a grade of Incomplete. The Supreme Court ruled that the lower court had not held the university to a “demanding burden of strict scrutiny.” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the opinion of the court. The case was brought by Abigail Fisher, a white woman who applied to the university in 2008 and was denied, and claimed that her constitutional rights and federal civil rights laws were violated. A Supreme Court ruling in 2003 allowed public universities to consider race to get a critical mass of minority students, but Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who wrote that opinion, has since ...

So, I was on my way to vote, which I thought would be an "in and out" thing...think again! The line is a loop-to-loop. Don't mind though since it is for a worthy cause. Anyway, I haven't cast my vote as yet. I am back home to research some names that I haven't heard before. These are the ones that are seeking my vote to sit on the Board of Education among other offices. I must admit, I haven't been paying too much attention to local politics, particularly education since my kids are no longer a part of K-12; but I am back! Fisher v. University of Texas brought me back to reality. Please bear with me while I climb on my high chair to voice my humble opinion. This is no freaking joke! Any body who has children in public, or private schools for that matter, should pay attention. Pay attention to your local politics because one day it will be national.

Supreme Court Hears Affirmative Action Case The Supreme Court heard oral arguments last week in Fisher v. Texas, a case involving the University of Texas’ nuanced admissions program. Abigail Fisher, the plaintiff, was denied admissions to the university and argues race should not be considered in the admissions process. The university’s individualized admissions process was designed specifically to comply with past Supreme Court cases. The Brennan Center, which filed an amicus brief in the case, asked the Court to recognize that diversity in higher education is crucial for the success of a multi-racial democracy.

In Just Weeks, Affirmative Action As We Know It Could Be Dead September 21, 2012 | Editor’s Note: On October 10 the U.S. Supreme Court will hear Fisher v. University of Texas, a case that could upend Affirmative Action policies nationwide. The plaintiff, Abigail Fisher, is suing the state over her rejection for admission into the University of Texas, which considers race in allotting a percentage of available seats after the top 10 percent of high school seniors are admitted. Fisher, who is white, did not place in the top 10 percent. She contends the race-based portion of the institution’s admission policy is a violation of her constitutional rights. Veteran education reporter Scott Jaschik spoke with New America Media’s Khalil Abdullah on the potential ramifications of the hearing and what it could mean for minority college students across the country. Jaschik was the editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education [3] from 1999 to 2003 before co-founding Inside Higher Ed [4], where he now serves as e ...
