The Supreme Court Expands Educational Options for Students in Landmark Ruling

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the landmark case, Carson v. Makin, Craig Hulse issued the following statement on behalf of yes. every kid.:  

“This landmark ruling breaks down barriers. Families will be empowered to use resources to access the educational experiences that best meet their child’s unique needs. This is a win for families, proving that the First Amendment honors families over institutions.   

It sets a strong precedent. Families are the best decision makers when it comes to their child’s education.” 

In partnership with Americans for Prosperity Foundation, yes. every kid. previously filed an amicus brief in Carson v. Makin, citing that Maine’s discriminatory practice violates the Free Exercise clause. Yes urged the Court to prohibit states from violating the Constitution and discriminating against students who would like to attend the school that is the best fit for them.
