Oklahoma has a stake in a major affirmative action case at the United States Supreme Court on Tuesday.

Oral arguments get underway in a case to determine whether statewide bans on affirmative action in schools are constitutional. The challenge is to Michigan’s affirmative action ban.

The ruling could affect Oklahoma and six other states that also prohibit factoring race and ethnicity in college admissions.

States arguing to keep the bans allow states to experiment with other ways of expanding minority enrollment. Opponents say they reduce campus diversity.
