This seminar explores the pursuit of equity in public education across select areas of doctrine, legislation, and regulation. The emphasis will be on K-12 schooling and the principal focus will be legislation addressing inequity in educational opportunity along lines of race, class, and disability status, and judicial interpretation of such legislation. The class will explore topics such as the division of authority between the federal government and the states to shape students' educational experiences; accountability for educational equity and quality; education outcomes; efforts to establish a right to education; the imposition of discipline; and the meaning of freedom of speech in the context of public education. Grades will be based on class participation and a 30-40 page paper on an approved topic; students will be required to submit a first draft and make revisions based on feedback received. This is a law course, but with substantial public policy content. There are no prerequisites, although Legislation, Administrative Law, and Constitutional Law would be helpful.
