At the end of the 2020-21 pilot program, children’s outcomes aver- aged attire “Kindergarten Advanc ” level, with 91.18% of children scor- ' ing “Kindergarten Beginning” or above. As for the parents, 97% were satisfied with the program saying it helped their child prepare for kinder- garten.

His story, “7 Yards: The Chris Norton Story,” can be found on Netflix. A felt need among the Justices to protect and nur- ture its authority, contributes to a narrative of caution, rather than bold moves. This sense of restraint — ju— dicial self-restraint —— encourages the court to uphold precedent for the purpose of ensuring stability and con— tinuity in the law. Frequent rulings that overturn precedents, especially those that protect the rights of the citizenry, have a jarring impact on the confidence of the public in the status of their constitutional liber— ties. It is for these reasons that the court’s new term, filled with blockbuster cases, will be closely watched. Judicial observers will scrutinize the court’s rulings in forth- coming cases that, among others, may eliminate a woman’s right to an abortion, expand"gun rights be- yond precedents, and perhaps chip away at the wall sep- arating church and state. The current, low public approval rating of the court are being cared for. ( ;( if: y Y 0U ARE AT RISK CALL Luna.

In these circumstances, the court could hardly lay claim to any moral authority,'de— spite elforts to characterize it as “the conscience of the nation.” Guardians of the court’s institutional integri- ty, the Justices themselves bear the primary responsi- bility, through their written opinions, of reassuring the citizenry that they are above the political fray.
