At a time when we’ve never been more aware of why our justice system matters and why diverse representation matters, educators cheer the appointment of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson to a lifetime appointment on our highest court. Her appointment as the first black female U.S. Supreme Court justice means our justice system will better reflect the diversity, voices and views of this nation.
