The Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project Conference:
The Supreme Court Confronts Affirmative Action in Public Schools
9:30 am - 12:00 pm
The Supreme Court is considering important cases from Seattle and Louisville that test the ability of public school systems to use race as a factor in assigning students to schools to promote diversity in elementary and secondary school classrooms. This conference will explore these cases and the role that race may play in the nation's schools in the wake of the 2003 Michigan affirmative action rulings and in a world no longer under the umbrella of Brown v. Board of Education.
