In the News: High-Stakes Senate Hearings on Gorsuch Set to Start This Week

President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee starting today to answer questions about his judicial philosophy and past rulings.

Clint Bolick writes about how Judge Gorsuch might approach education issues in a feature article for the summer issue of Education Next.

Those in the education community have been studying Gorsuch with particular interest, given the critical issues before the court. In the current term, justices are hearing cases involving the appropriate scope of services guaranteed by federal special-education law, government aid to religious institutions providing educational services, and how intellectual property law applies to sports uniform design. And justices will soon hear a case involving restroom access for transgender students. Advocates on all sides want to know: if confirmed, how might Gorsuch influence these and other education-related decisions?
