Trump Administration to Require Texas Tech to End Use of Race in Admissions Decisions

Via the Wall Street Journal:

The Education Department’s civil rights division is requiring Texas Tech University to end its use of race in admissions decisions, a move to force the school into compliance with its view of federal antidiscrimination law.

The university struck the deal with the Education Department in February, concluding a 14-year investigation into the university’s use of affirmative action, according to a copy of the resolution agreement viewed by The Wall Street Journal.

The agreement is the first time the Trump administration has asked a school to curtail its affirmative-action practices. It signals the direction the agreement will take future investigations of schools’ use of race in admissions.
