AdarandMain PointsRemedial = Compelling Interest(Note Croson holding summarized)Again strict scrutiny, but first time applies it to federal law, not state or local law
GrutterMain PointsDiversity in higher education = compelling interestMust be narrowly tailored (approach to achieve interest is best fit)Race can be one plus factor, but must be considered in conjunction with entire individual, cannot be preference solely based on race
Seattle School DistrictMain PointsInvolves diversity in grade schoolDifferent from Grutter Means not narrowly tailoredHere, racial balance the school districts seek is a defined range set solely by reference to the demographics of the respective school districts.racial balance is not to be achieved for its own sake.
