Texas Affirmative Action Case Could Set Precedent

Ad Feedback

The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear a case Wednesday challenging affirmative action in higher education.

The high court will hear arguments over a program at the University of Texas that considers race as one of the factors in selecting a quarter of its incoming students.

Supporters say it helps provide diverse educational experience previously endorsed by the court.

In the last 35 years, the court has ruled twice that race may be used in determining some college admissions.

Opponents say the university is practicing illegal discrimination by considering race in its admissions policy at all.

The case could produce new limits on affirmative action at universities or roll it back entirely.
