This fall seminar will address several contemporary issues in elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education. Topics will include, among others: constitutional remedies for unequal school funding; the use of race and ethnicity in K-12 people assignment policies and college admissions; denial of access to education due to immigration status, English proficiency, or disability; sex discrimination; and the challenges of racial and hyper-segregation. There will be no casebook. Course materials will be available online through bCourses. Grades will be based, approximately equally, on (a) class participation, (b) a draft 10-15-page paper on an approved topic, and (c) the final paper, after instructor feedback.
