Opponents Target Kavanaugh on Private School Choice, Affirmative Action


September 5, 2018

As the confirmation hearing nears for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh, teachers' unions and progressive groups are trying to get traction for their opposition to him by focusing in part on two education issues that could soon return to the high court—private school choice and affirmative action.

"Brett Kavanaugh's record as a private citizen, lawyer, political staffer, and judge demonstrates that if confirmed to the Supreme Court, he would use that perch to advance Betsy DeVos and her allies' agenda to privatize public schools," the National Education Association said in an Aug. 29 report titled, "Kavanaugh Could Unleash Voucher Programs Throughout the Nation."
