Following the Supreme Court Decision on Race

By Michelle R. Davis — June 28, 2007 1 min read

Though the U.S. Supreme Court today rejected school diversity plans that use race as a factor in the case involving voluntary integration plans in school districts in Louisville, Ky. and Seattle, the ruling didn’t stop bloggers from opining about the Justices’ opinion. In addition to Education Week‘s extensive coverage, check out SCOTUSblog which recaps the term-ending case and provides solid analysis. The NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund school integration blog cites Justice Anthony M. Kennedy’s support of allowing school districts to pursue integrated schools despite his agreement in parts with the majority opinion. The Volokh Conspiracy also has plenty to say about Justice Kennedy’s stance and the reactions expressed by readers of the blog are also a good read.
