Root and branch

Posted By on Thu, Jun 28, 2007 at 9:56 AM

The Roberts-Thomas-Scalia-Alito Supreme Court is busily doing the jobs they were appointed to do. Today, it closed in on putting an end to considering race in school assignments. America's schools, already resegregating, are given more room to do so rapidly and with little fear of judicial intervention. Kennedy says an end to racial consideration is not what he intended in joining the majority -- except in the current Louisville and Seattle plans.

There are race considerations in school assignment plans all across the U.S. and in Pulaski County, Ark. The future question, I guess, is whether they go too far for Justice Kennedy to abide.
