Ho v. San Francisco Unified School District

 

Though I could only skim this, it's 35 pages long, I understand the gist of why public schools in San Francisco do not use affirmative action. After Lowell High School  made the standards higher for admission of asian-american students, families sued.  It's reverse affirmative action.  Asian Americans are discriminated against because they have an stereotypically intense work ethic, which apparently schools don't want (this is my opinion not the articles). This affirmative action was trying to limit a group, instead of welcoming it.  In a way full-on affirmative action today is trying to squeeze out the white students, but there are so many I don't really see how that's totally plausible.  Anyways, this article promotes the neutrality and fairness that comes along with not having affirmative action, which is a plus.
