Comments by Justice Antonin Scalia on race in the U.S. Supreme Court this week drew growing criticism and sparked a closer look at the theories he referenced.

The justices were divided as they once again took up a race-conscious admissions plan at the University of Texas at Austin.

The justices consider a case about the meaning of "one person, one vote," with consequences for elected school boards and the representation of children.

The justices decline to hear an appeal from parents in the Shawnee Mission school district challenging spending limits in the state school finance plan.

The U.S. Supreme Court justice will help promote iCivics, the education effort featuring games and lesson plans launched in 2009 by retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
