EQUITY MATTERS EP. 4: Affirmative Action is a Successful Policy
The Supreme Court is considering the future of affirmative action in college admissions as it reviews challenges against Harvard University and the University of North Carolina. Sociologist Amy Lutz from Syracuse University's Maxwell School presents recent research examining the academic success of racial and ethnic minority students benefiting from affirmative action, while also discussing broader issues tied to affirmative action and urging Supreme Court justices to support race-conscious admission policies.
The Program on Educational Equity and Policy (PEEPs) at the Center for Policy Research disseminates research on the causes and consequences of educational inequality and policies to address these inequalities. Formerly known as the Education Finance and Accountability Program, the Program publishes a working paper series, a policy brief series entitled It's Elementary, and a podcast series called Equity Matters, and organizes events to further its goal of educational equity.
