The Trump administration is planning to rescind Obama-era 2011 and 2016 guidance documents encouraging the use of race in college admissions to promote diversity on campus, the Wall Street Journal is reporting.  Administration officials will argue that the guidelines reach beyond the Supreme Court precedent and oversimplify what is allowed under the law.  The U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing claims from Asian-American students who believe they were unfairly discriminated against in Harvard University’s admissions practices. A similar complaint was dismissed last year by the Obama administration.
