The Detroit-area high school where four students were fatally shot has reopened for the first time since the Nov. 30 tragedy. Oxford Community Schools spokeswoman Dani Stublensky says the resumption of classes at Oxford High School “went very well" Monday morning. The students have been attending classes at other buildings since Jan. 10. Four students were killed and six students and a teacher were injured in the shooting. Student Ethan Crumbley is charged with murder and other crimes. His parents also are facing charges. Oxford High School Principal Steve Wolf said in a video posted Sunday that “we are reclaiming our high school back.”

The conservative-dominated Supreme Court has agreed to hear a challenge to the consideration of race in college admissions, adding another blockbuster case to a term with abortion, guns, religion and COVID-19 on the agenda. The court said Monday it'll take up lawsuits claiming Harvard, a private institution, and the University of North Carolina, a state school, discriminate against Asian American applicants. A decision against the schools could mean the end of affirmative action in admissions. Lower courts rejected the challenges, citing 40 years of high court rulings that allow colleges and universities to consider race in admissions decisions. But the schools must do so in a narrowly tailored way to promote diversity.
