Supreme Court to Hear Michigan Affirmative Action Cases in March. (Noteworthy News)
As higher education experts predicted over the past year, the Supreme Court decided early this month that it will hear the University of Michigan's affirmative action cases and decide whether considering race as a factor in college admissions violates federal law or the Constitution.
The cases, involving the University of Michigan's undergraduate school and its law school, each include claims by prospective students who say they were discriminated against by the admissions programs because they are White. The students claim they were denied admission to the schools while minority students with lower test scores and grades were accepted.
