A Federal Appeals Court Upholds California Measure Barring Racial Preferences.
Schmidt, Peter
Chronicle of Higher Education, v43 n32 pA28-A29 Apr 18 1997
A federal appeals court has upheld an amendment to California's constitution that bars government agencies from granting preferences based on gender or race. The California Civil Rights Initiative, or Proposition 209, was found not to violate the Equal Protection Clause. If the ruling is not reversed, public colleges and universities will be forced to change many admissions and hiring policies. (MSE)
