MORE GOOD NEWS on the Supreme Court Front

    In 2 days, the Supreme Court (SC) will hear oral arguments on "race-conscious" college admission. A lot of related good news popped up recently.
   To sense how things have apparently been turned around, read the following quotes:
    (a) "Racial Affirmative Action in Higher Education May Be on Its Way Out" -- subtitle of Section I of a recent Century Foundation Report: http://tcf.org/publications/pdfs/ABAA.pdf
    (b) "To be clear, I believe that race-conscious affirmative action is necessary, and often beneficial — though I am not hopeful that the court will agree." -- taken from a recent NY Times article entitled, "Moving Beyond Affirmative Action." Click on http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/05/opinion/moving-beyond-affirmative-action.html
   Specifically, The National Law Journal will feature 80-20 EF's amicus brief to the Supreme Court, as the "appellate brief of the week" this week. That brief was written by our lawyer Alan Gura, and submitted jointly to the SC with Brandeis Center of Human Rights.
   It will be excellent coverage during the week of argument. To view YOUR amicus brief, in English , or Chinese or Korean, please click on the name of the language.
   Did YOU think that so much could have changed for the better since 80-20 EF started to advocate a "race-neutral" admission policy several months ago?
   EF works very hard and effectively for YOU
