Public Education and the Law: The Effects That the Shifting Sands of Federal Education Policy Will Have on Public Education  

Much has been reported on the Trump Administration’s policy goals for public education and the enforcement of civil rights in public schools from transgender and undocumented rights, to school discipline and disability discrimination.  What has changed?  What remains the same?  Find out how the new changes have affected the operation of school districts.  The seminar will conclude with the ever popular “Skating Tour” of recent laws and regulations, as well as a review of court and administrative decisions affecting public schools.

The interactive session will cover matters of interest to lawyers whose practice involves school law, as well as to educators.  Topics will include a review of this past year’s laws and regulations and court decisions affecting the operation of public schools and a review of the direction in which federal education and policy is headed.

The 2018 Edition of “Public Education and the Law” will be provided to each participant.
