Affirmative Action in Education
Fri. 10/26 11a: Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on the constitutionality of affirmative action in higher education.
This issue is something that has many in Indian Country concerned.
With this in mind we ask, is diversity in college admissions a right Native students should be afforded? Can Native students still expect a quality college education if their test scores and academics aren't measured equally to non-native students from more affluent backgrounds? What will the future look like for Native college hopefuls if the Supreme Court decides for or against?
We'll explore these questions and more as we discuss the Supreme Court, Affirmative Action, and the future of Native College students.
