Rees, Nina – American Enterprise Institute, 2020
There are three reasons conservatives should support making access to a high-quality public education a constitutionally protected civil right.

Despite the popular belief that affirmative action gives Black and Latino students an unfair advantage, these students are still underrepresented at the nation's selective colleges and at two- and four-year public colleges and universities in the vast majority of states.
