Elections, as the saying goes, have consequences. One of the most far-reaching is the new president’s opportunity to nominate judges to the U.S. Supreme Court, with the advice and consent of the Senate.
We believe that all students, no matter their ZIP code, should have the opportunity for a great public school education; Supreme Court rulings directly affect all of those opportunities. That’s why we’re asking the Senate to thoroughly vet Trump’s nominee during the confirmation process.
My full statement on the nomination of Neil Gorsuch is available here.
