Speaker McClinton's statement on Thursday's SCOTUS decision on college admissions
Speaker McClinton's statement on Thursday's Supreme Court decision on college admissions:
“A year after the Dobb’s ruling rescinded a woman’s right to an abortion, SCOTUS – an unelected and unaccountable body - again reversed a long-time precedent that may negatively impact millions of Americans. Today’s ruling ending the use of affirmative action in higher education admissions hurts all students but is especially detrimental to Black and brown students who are already underrepresented on many college campuses. This is incredibly disappointing at a time when we need to be doing more to foster diversity and inclusion, not less. In Pennsylvania, we’ll continue to fight for equitable educational opportunities for every student."
