Education Dept. urged to collect race data

More than 30 education and college access groups are calling on the U.S. Department of Education to begin collecting new data from colleges on the race and ethnicity of prospective and admitted students.

The call comes ahead of an expected U.S. Supreme Court decision restricting the use of race-conscious admissions. In a letter published last week, advocacy groups wrote that more granular admissions data is needed to understand the impact of this decision on college admissions and student equity.
