Sandra Day O'Connor Weighs In on Immigration, the Supreme Court and Civics Ed

STEPHANOPOULOS: And the administration has said that they might file a brief ... against the law with the Supreme Court. Final question about iCivics. What is the single most important thing you want those students, students across the country, to understand about our system of government?

O'CONNOR: I want them to understand what it is, how it works, and how all of us as citizens are part and parcel of it. What's decided affects us, we care about it, and we're part of that process. And if ... the students learn how the system works, and understand it, they will feel empowered as citizens to go do things that they care about and work on. And I love that. That it's a great opportunity to teach young people. And middle school level is the perfect age, the kids are so bright and eager to learn. It's just the perfect age.

STEPHANOPOULOS: It seemed like you got through to them today.

O'CONNOR: Well, they got through on their own. They're a bright bunch in there.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Justice O'Connor, thanks very much for your time.

O'CONNOR: Thank you.
