Supreme Court’s Decision to Reject Affirmative Action in Higher Education Sparks Outcry from Civil Rights Groups

The Supreme Court's decision to reject affirmative action in higher education has been met with sharp criticism from two of the court's liberal justices and civil rights groups. The ruling is likely to reshape how higher education institutions consider applicants, as they can no longer use race as a factor in admissions. NAACP President Derrick Johnson argued that the decision will make it more difficult for students of color to access higher education, and called on Congress to pass legislation to protect affirmative action in higher education.
