Equity and Bias in Education: Selected Topics
Spring 2023 • Section To Be Determined
• CRN 50553
The focus on bias will have two major aspects. One is the exploration of ways in which education law has often, in combination with other areas of law, such as discriminatory housing laws, contributed to educational inequity based on race, ethnicity, gender, disability, and other categories. The other aspect involves looking at ways in which education law has been, is being, or could be changed in order to address these inequities. Readings will include relevant cases and statutes, as well as articles and commentary that examine the ways in which statutory and decisional law have supported or sought to address bias in educational systems.
