Education Law provides students with an introduction to law relating to public schools (K-12), including the interplay of the U.S. Constitution, federal statutes, state, and local law.  It examines the right to a public education, the equitable distribution of public educational resources, equal education opportunity, desegregation, harassment, students’ rights to expression, student disciplinary processes, search and seizure in public schools, religion in the schools, educating students with disabilities, federal reform, accountability, and testing. It can serve as an important foundation for those who wish to work in the field of education, run for public office, or better understand education policy.
