This seminar concerns equity, excellence and reform in public education across select areas of doctrine, legislation, regulation, and enforcement. The emphasis will be on K-12 public education, but we will also touch on undergraduate higher education. The principal topics will be: federal-state-local division of authority; accountability for educational equity and excellence; K-12 resource equity; and, more generally, antidiscrimination law in education. No casebook; course materials will be available on bCourses. Grades will be based on class participation and a 10-15-page paper on an approved topic, with feedback on a required first draft. This is a law course, but with substantial public policy content. There are no prerequisites, although Administrative Law, Legislation and to a lesser extent Constitutional Law would be helpful.

Requirements Satisfaction:

This is an Option 1 class; two Option 1 classes fulfill the J.D. writing requirement.

Exam Notes: (P) Final paper  
Course Category: Public Law and Policy
