    It has been 150 years since the ratification of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The 14th Amendment was one of three “Reconstruction Amendments” ratified in the wake of the American Civil War. 

    The Equal Protection Clause’s impacts how public schools and universities may treat students on the basis of race. The Equal Protection Clause plays a role in affirmative action in college admissions and busing of K-12 students. Most notably, the Equal Protection Clause was at the center of the landmark desegregation case Brown v. Board of Education.
