Court will hear exchange student discrimination case
The Michigan Supreme Court has ordered a lower court to decide whether the Michigan High School Athletic Association discriminated against a former exchange student from South Korea.
The MHSAA said he was only eligible to play one year of high school football and denied him permission to be a member of the Hudson High School varsity team.
The rule is meant to stop schools from recruiting exchange students to build championship teams.
The state Department of Civil Rights sued the high school athletic association for discrimination based on race and national origin.
