Blend It, Don't End It: Affirmative Action and the Texas Ten Percent Plan After Grutter and Gratz

Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), Americans for a Fair Chance, a project of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund, the Equal Justice Society, and the Society of American Law Teachers - June 2004 

Acknowledging the benefits of the Ten Percent Plan, "Blend It, Don't End It" highlights research showing that the Ten Percent Plan, combined with scholarship assistance and other efforts, led to a more than one-quarter increase in high schools sending students to UT-Austin between 1996 and 2000, and that there was a substantial increase in students from both inner-city and largely minority schools, as well as rural schools with large white, black and/or Latino populations.
