The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a case stemming from a dispute over a child bringing her service dog to school, but ends a case on teachers' union fees.

In a case with potential implications for school officials, the justices unanimously tossed out the conviction of former Virginia Gov. Robert F. McDonnell.

The justices' 4-4 vote means a lower court ruling blocking the administration's plan is upheld without an opinion in a cased being watched in the education community.

The court ruled 4-3 against the white applicant challenging the University of Texas at Austin plan in a case closely watched for its implications both in higher education and for similar school district efforts.

Judge Merrick Garland told graduating 5th graders from the elementary school where he has tutored for 18 years that they can achieve their dreams through hard work.

A 6th grade teacher's use of the word, even in a class discussion, runs into a district policy against using racial epithets in front of students.
