Supreme Court’s Scalia Brought Conservative Outlook to Education Cases

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who was found dead Saturday at age 79, brought his conservative and originalist outlook to scores of education cases during his nearly three decades on the high court.

On the major education cases of his era, Scalia consistently voted against the consideration of race in higher education and K-12 schools, backed a low wall of separation between church and state, and generally favored school administrators over students and their rights.
