The Charleston County School Board is looking to get more minority children into the student body at the prestigious Buist Academy, only they legally can't use race as a determining factor.
Don't know about Buist Academy or its complicated past? Here's a taste. So, in those things that happen when politics and laws collide they're looking into using methods that look at race-related factors to determine enrollment (Medicade, ZIP codes, etc.)
During the 1980s the school was forced to adopt a quota system that required 40% minority enrollment, but that was abandoned and now minority enrollment hovers around 25%.
