Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District
No. 05-908

Title:
    Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1, et al.

Subject:

    Equal Protection, Public Schools, Racial Diversity
Questions:
  1. How are the Equal Protection rights of public high school students affected by the jurisprudence of Grutter v. Bollinger, 539 U.S. 306 (2003), and Gratz v. Bollinger, 539 U.S. 244 (2003)?

  2. Is racial diversity a compelling interest that can justify the use of race in selecting students for admission to public high schools?

  3. May a school district that is not racially segregated and that normally permits a student to attend any high school of her choosing deny a child admission to her chosen school solely because of her race in an effort to achieve a desired racial balance in particular schools, or does such racial balancing violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment?
