Instructor(s) Secunda, Paul

Education Law explores controversial and thought-provoking legal issues faced by public and private elementary and secondary schools (less time is spent on higher education issues). In examining issues such as affirmative action, school prayer, creation science, school vouchers, faculty tenure, student discipline (including corporal punishment), academic expression, and special education, we will delve into various constitutional, statutory, and common law sources. The goal of this course is to provide the student with a basic understanding of some of the most important legal challenges that face public and private elementary and secondary schools in the 21st century.
