The public school classroom sits at the heart of America's modern-day culture wars. Once seen as mundane administrative meetings, school board hearings throughout the country are now the site of raucous protests to reform school administration and curricula. These efforts track the growing politicization of public education, from "anti-Critical Race Theory" bills that revise and obscure history, to legislation forcing teachers to ‘out’ students who confide in them. While these initiatives are framed as efforts to prevent student discomfort in the school setting, advocates are compelled to ask: whose comfort is being prioritized, and at whose expense?

Engaging the law from a policy advocacy perspective, this course surveys state and local efforts to reshape the public education system and its resultant consequences. Students will engage with legislative and administrative materials, supplemented by case law, in order to situate the current moment within the larger movement for education equity. Utilizing Critical Race and Queer theories as frameworks, students will examine the role that race and gender does, could, and should play in the development of our society's youngest minds.

This course is offered in a round-table format, for which student participation and knowledge-generation is essential to the learning experience. Students should expect to contribute to the class discussion through submission of short papers and co-facilitation of class sessions on topics of personal interest.
