The Journal of Law and Social Policy’s 12th Annual Symposium

The Right to Education

In our current social, economic, and political environment, quality education is inextricably tied to a person’s standing in society. Unfortunately, a student’s opportunity to receive a quality education rests heavily on her socioeconomic status. We hope to explore the issue of the right to education in light of Rodriguez, and how various issues such as school funding, quality measures, and the current administration’s actions affect the public education system. We hope to bring in legal experts, professors, teachers, and other members of the community to speak on this issue.
