This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in San Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez that our Constitution does not guarantee a fundamental right to education. This anniversary is no cause for celebration. However, it does invite our nation to reflect on the lessons learned since the decision and, most importantly, how our nation can build on those lessons to ensure that all students have access to a high-quality education.
