DETROIT (AP) – A federal appeals court has struck down Michigan’s ban on the consideration of race and gender when enrolling students at public colleges and universities.
In a 2-1 decision Friday, the court said Michigan’s Proposal 2 is unconstitutional because it burdens minorities. It was approved by voters in 2006.
The University of Michigan and other public schools have been forced to change admissions policies offering preferential treatment based on race and gender. – Source
