LAW 5001: Equity and Bias in Education: Selected Topics
Fall 2023 • Section 21 • CRN 51911

Course Description

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.
