ABSTRACT
6 A divided Supreme Court tackled racial preferences in college admissions, revisiting a Univ. of Texas case that justices first heard about 3 years ago. Texas admits the top 10% of graduates in all its high schools based on grades alone, boosting Latino and black admissions. The court debate is on other, vague criteria for increasing black and Latino enrollment based on race directly.
