Education Law in an Age of Change
EDST 315
Spring 2024
Section: 01  

This course is an introduction to the legal processes that shape public education in the United States. This course examines constitutional, statutory, regulatory, and case law in education in order to see the efficacy and limitations of using the court to advance change in education. Through readings, class discussions, and assignments, we will grapple with the following questions:

1. What legal processes inform public education in the United States?
2. Which seminal court cases have shaped public education?
3. Who effects legal change in public education?
4. Do the various constituencies of public educational law function within symbiotic relationships?

This course is a school law class, not a law school class.
