Struggling with Set-Asides.
Dowling-Sendor, Benjamin
American School Board Journal, v186 n4 p20,22,63 Apr 1999
When a qualified white student was denied admission to an elite public school, her father sued the Boston Public School Committee, claiming the new, racially based admissions policy violated the Equal Protection Clause. The First Circuit Court reversed a lower court decision for the school committee, because the admission policy served no compelling government interest. (MLH)
