In this booklet, papers presented at a 1978 conference on the implications of the Supreme Court's ruling in the Bakke case are reprinted. The issue of the constitutionality of special admissions programs for minority applicants is considered and related policy problems facing educators and political leaders are examined. The future of admissions programs and the creation of sensible policies for professional school admissions are also discussed. The Bakke case is reviewed and explained from a historical perspective. Questions of educational due process, the validity of test scores as a measure of merit, and the socioeconomic biases of the admissions selection systems are explored. (WI)
