As the Kavanaugh nomination proceeds, what messages are our students getting?

We’ve all been reading and talking about Brett Kavanaugh and the allegations he’s facing of sexual assaults committed in high school and college. Regardless of one’s political affiliation, the nomination of a judge to a lifetime appointment on the Supreme Court is something to be taken seriously and should not be rushed.

I have called on Senators to have the FBI fully investigate each allegation before they move forward with the confirmation process. The allegations against Judge Kavanaugh are serious and should not be brushed aside.

Beyond my concerns about the rush to confirm Kavanaugh, for me as a mom, grandmother, and educator, one of the most important elements of this discussion is what our students are taking from it.
