Voters in Arizona have approved Proposition 209 which in effect, bans affirmative action. Inside Higher Ed. reports:
Arizona voters on Tuesday approved Proposition 107 to ban the consideration of race, ethnicity or gender by units of state government, including public colleges and universities. With 2,075 of 2,239 precincts reporting as of early Wednesday morning, unofficial results from the state had the measure passing with just under 60 percent support.
California, Michigan, Nebraska and Washington State have already imposed such bans. Only one state — Colorado — has rejected in a statewide vote a proposed ban on the consideration of race and ethnicity.
