Course Description

 
This course will introduce students to education and civil rights law and policy that are the foundation for civil rights protections in K-12 public education. Students will explore key education and civil rights issues in the following topic areas: school segregation (past and present), the criminalization of students of color, school privatization, and social movements for education justice. Students will emerge from this class with an understanding of historical and current flashpoints in education and civil rights in the United States and the role of lawyers and the law. In addition to analyzing key cases, articles, and social science research, students will explore how law students and lawyers can play a meaningful role through policy, litigation, and advocacy for social change.
