Roberts on education

I haven't been able to find anything on Roberts' decisions on education, if there were any at all in his short time on the bench. But if Sen. Schumer has his way we'll know more. The following is a list of questions the Senator plans to ask Judge Roberts specifically about education. For the complete list of questions, click this fair and balanced link.

What is the proper Constitutional role of Government in enacting laws to regulate education?

How far can the Government go under the Constitution to ensure equal treatment for all students?

How far can the Court go to protect speech and/or prohibit violations of the establishment clause in the schools?

For example, do you believe that Santa Fe Independent School Dist. v. Doe (2000) was decided correctly?

Does the Constitution guarantee parents the right to choose their children’s education, as established in Meyer v. Nebraska (1923) and Pierce v. Society of Sisters (1925)?

It'll be interesting to see if he's able to dodge these questions.
