Michigan's Homework Assignment
La Noue, George R.
Academic Questions, v18 n2 p49-56 Mar 2005
The puzzlement that followed Justice O'Connor's convoluted opinion in "Grutter" is evolving into a remarkable consensus by players on both sides of the question on the use of race/ethnicity in academic settings. George R. La Noue examines new guidelines from The College Board: Science, Technology, and Mathematics professors; and major educational organizations about the steps to be taken to meet judicial strict scrutiny standards. Implementing these steps, however, by quantifying a "critical mass" of minorities without creating a quota, and then determining how much of the mass can be created through race neutral means, has remained an elusive assignment that few, if any, universities have completed.
