Commentator Elizabeth Vozzola rethinks Affirmative Action
Last fall, the U.S. Supreme Court heard opening arguments in the controversial Fisher v. University of Texas affirmative action case, in which Abigail Fisher, who is a white 2008 Texas public high school graduate charged that she was a victim of racial discrimination. She narrowly missed out on admission at the U-T under the state's Top 10% Law. It guarantees admission to any Texas high school student ranked in the top 10% of her or his class. As a former university affirmative action officer, and a researcher on the topic of morality, commentator Elizabeth Vozzola has been following the case with great interest.
