Afirmative Action and College Admissions

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments this week on the role that race plays in college admissions. The organization Students for Fair Admissions sued Harvard College and the University of North Carolina (UNC) claiming that these schools discriminate against certain groups of people based on race.

Focus On Education Eagle Forum

When the world turned upside down in the early spring of 2020, parents were left scrambling to determine ways to entertain their families while they were “locked down” for an estimated two weeks. Two months later, those same parents were wondering how their children could legitimately finish the school year without getting “too far behind” and being prepared for the next grade.
