What Supreme Court Justice Kennedy’s Retirement Means for K-12 and Race

The Hechinger Report, 6.28.18

Opinion-editorial by David C. Bloomfield, professor of education leadership, law, and policy at Brooklyn College and The Graduate Center, CUNY. Bloomfield argues that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s education legacy was most profound in the area of racial preferences. A moderating force among the Court’s conservatives, Kennedy’s retirement removes that influence. As a result, we may see an end to permissible considerations of race in voluntary college and K-12 enrollment plans.
