Abstract

In the article, Does Race Matter in Educational Diversity? A Legal and Empirical Analysis, Rutgers Race and the Law Review, Vol. 13, No. 2, 2012, we pointed out that: “A long and difficult history preceded the judicial use of educational diversity to examine the limits of admissions criteria. The history reaches from ending slavery and extends in successive stages, first, to prohibitory affirmative action designed to stop racial discrimination, second, to compensatory affirmative action as a means of correcting for prior discrimination, and third, to “modern” affirmative action to pursue diversity in university undergraduate, graduate, and professional education. As important as discussion of the broader developmental issues would be in providing additional context and meaning for the questions analyzed in this report, that discussion is not presented in the Does Race Matter article because it would have unduly extended the length of the article.

Keywords: affirmative action, educational admissions, constitutional law, Fourteenth Amendment
