From VOA Learning English, this is the Education Report.
The United States Supreme Court said last week it will re-hear arguments on a controversial college admissions policy. The case involves affirmative action, the custom of helping groups that have been treated unfairly in the past. The Supreme Court plans to hear the case of Abigail Fisher a second time. Ms. Fisher, a white female, was denied admission to the University of Texas at Austin in 2008. Ms. Fisher took legal action against the University of Texas. Her case went to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2013. The court sent the case back to a lower court, which supported the university. In 2003, the Supreme Court ruled that schools can consider an applicant’s race as part of their admission decisions. Michael Yaki is a member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. He says affirmative action is a good thing. He says race should not prevent someone from getting into a university. But he thinks it should be a consideration when university officials want to create balance in a class. Supporters say affirmative action is needed to increase economic and other opportunities for some minority groups. Tom Fitton is president of Judicial Watch, a policy group in Washington D.C. He says colleges should make decisions based only on a student’s ability or merit. He says raced-based admissions programs are a violation of the U.S. Constitution. Abigail Fisher now works at a finance company after completing studies at Louisiana State University. The Supreme Court will hear her case against the University of Texas in October. The Court’s decision could have a major effect on college classrooms in the U.S.
