"Michigan Case Puts Chink in Higher Education Admission Standards "



This paper examines the recent April 2014 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court supporting the state of Michigan's constitutional amendment banning the use of race as an affirmative action tool in selecting admissions to the state's public universities. The 6-2 ruling in the case of Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action has been hailed by some as a major step in the unraveling of the policy of Affirmative Action on a permanent basis.
