The Racial Politics Of Elementary School Choice For Black Parents Living In Brooklyn, Ny, Shannon N. Allen 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Racial Politics Of Elementary School Choice For Black Parents Living In Brooklyn, Ny, Shannon N. Allen

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Charter school proliferation has disproportionately affected Black urban neighborhoods and the debate about the relationship between racial educational equity and enhanced public school choice through charters has created dissension and discord in scholarship and across Black politics, educational organizing efforts, neighborhoods, and school communities. This study is an interpretive policy analysis of the effects of charter school policy on the elementary school choice preferences and experiences of twenty Black parents living in predominately low-income and racially segregated Black Brooklyn neighborhoods where charter schools are disproportionately concentrated. It was designed to identify disparities between the values and goals of school choice ...

The Impact Of Marijuana Legalization On Youth & The Need For State Legislation On Marijuana-Specific Instruction In K–12 Schools, Amanda Harmon Cooley 2017 Pepperdine University

The Impact Of Marijuana Legalization On Youth & The Need For State Legislation On Marijuana-Specific Instruction In K–12 Schools, Amanda Harmon Cooley

Pepperdine Law Review

State legalization of marijuana is a divisive and polarizing issue that has resulted in fragmentation between governments and citizens. Contrary to federal law, voters in many states have approved ballot initiatives legalizing the sale of marijuana to adults for their recreational use. This Article argues that any state that legalizes marijuana has a concomitant duty to amend its K–12 public school instructional statutes to provide for substantial marijuana education. No state has yet enacted such legislation even though current alternative educational methods fail to provide sufficient safeguards. Accordingly, this Article proposes new statutory remedies that could bridge the gap ...

Library research that used to take hours or days can now be done in minutes. Online materials ...


Dismantling The School-To-Prison Pipeline: Tools For Change, Jason P. Nance 2017 University of Florida Levin College of Law

Dismantling The School-To-Prison Pipeline: Tools For Change, Jason P. Nance

Jason P. Nance

The school-to-prison pipeline is one of our nation’s most formidable challenges. It refers to the trend of directly referring students to law enforcement for committing certain offenses at school or creating conditions under which students are more likely to become involved in the criminal justice system, such as excluding them from school. This article analyzes the school-to-prison pipeline’s devastating consequences on students, its causes, and its disproportionate impact on students of color. But most importantly, this article comprehensively identifies and describes specific, evidence-based tools to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline that lawmakers, school administrators, and teachers in all areas ...


Rethinking Law Enforcement Officers In Schools, Jason P. Nance 2017 University of Florida Levin College of Law

Rethinking Law Enforcement Officers In Schools, Jason P. Nance

Jason P. Nance

A recent event that occurred in a South Carolina classroom illustrates why there should be concern about assigning law enforcement officers to work in public schools. In October of 2015, a teacher called a law enforcement officer into a classroom to handle a student behavior problem. A female student was using a cell phone in violation of school rules. Other students in the classroom captured what happened next by video. The videos show that when the student refused to exit the classroom, the officer grabbed her by the neck, flipped her and her desk to the floor, and then forcibly ...


Educational Fiscal Policy And Its Effects On How Our Children Learn: Comparing Minnesota And Illinois, Sally Anne Stenzel 2017 Minnesota State University, Mankato

Educational Fiscal Policy And Its Effects On How Our Children Learn: Comparing Minnesota And Illinois, Sally Anne Stenzel

Anne Stenzel

The study compares Illinois’ and Minnesota’s education fiscal policies. Illinois funds it’s education system mainly from the local level, whereas Minnesota funds it’s mainly from the state level. Thus, in Illinois, if there are discrepancies between household incomes in wealthier and poorer areas, the schools in wealthier areas would receive more money than those in poorer areas. Test scores are then compared. Illinois typically has lower scores than Minnesota. The conclusion is that Illinois’ policies are hindering their students’ learning, compared to Minnesota students, with some mixed results.


Report: Tying Teacher Evaluation To Student Test Performance In New York State, Anthony Ciaccio, Richard DeMaio, Ashley Flynn, Sean Hanssler, Michelle Malone, Steven Mare, George Santiago, Victoria Short 2017 Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University

Report: Tying Teacher Evaluation To Student Test Performance In New York State, Anthony Ciaccio, Richard Demaio, Ashley Flynn, Sean Hanssler, Michelle Malone, Steven Mare, George Santiago, Victoria Short

Hofstra Law Student Works

This Report, authored by a small group of third-year law students under the guidance of Professor Robin Charlow, focuses on the controversial issue of tying teacher evaluations to student performance on state assessments, specifically, as this practice has been applied under New York State law. First, we provide a brief history of the federal and state laws that have resulted in the implementation of this practice. We then examine the arguments both for and against using student performance on state assessments as a measure of teacher effectiveness, assess all options for amending or abolishing the practice, and propose one procedural ...

Research Collection School Of Law

Game-based constructivist learning has gained considerable attention as educational institutions aim to move from traditional instructional teaching to interactive and collaborative methods. The question is less asked of whether games should be used in teaching but rather how games should be used to create deep learning in students. In light of this movement, the Grade Inflation Game, or GIGAME, was developed. This case study tackles the research question of how games may be designed to harness the benefits of constructivist learning. It first documents the conceptualization of GIGAME and next proposes theoretical frameworks that can be used to guide the ...

From Common Core To Charter: The Economic Remedy To Nc Education, Hunter B. Winstead 2016 Liberty University

From Common Core To Charter: The Economic Remedy To Nc Education, Hunter B. Winstead

Senior Honors Theses

Although numerous factors contribute to the decline of North Carolina’s economic prosperity, one of the most prevalent is the waste that occurs through the ineffective funding of education. In the last century, this system has become progressively centralized and bureaucratized which restricts the presence of diversity and hinders economic choice. The purest evidence of this movement is demonstrated through the state’s adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), an initiative designed to serve as a basis for federal entanglement in education. Proponents of CCSS claimed that the system would accomplish a variety of rigorous educational goals; however ...

Reinterpreting The Right To An Open Future: From Autonomy To Authenticity, Scott Altman 2016 BLR

Reinterpreting The Right To An Open Future: From Autonomy To Authenticity, Scott Altman

University of Southern California Legal Studies Working Paper Series

This paper reinterprets a child’s right to an open future as based on values other than autonomy. The paper identifies two goods that parents sometimes undermine when shaping their children’s values: authenticity and identification. It argues that these can be recognized as primary goods by both liberals and by fundamentalists. The paper then shows how we might re-conceptualize the right to an open future as protecting authenticity and identification rather than autonomy.

As a running example, the paper considers ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel who deny their sons secular education beyond an elementary school level. If their sons do ...


Campus Sexual Misconduct Due Process Protections, Christina Kirkpatrick 2016 Cedarville University

Campus Sexual Misconduct Due Process Protections, Christina Kirkpatrick

Channels: Where Disciplines Meet

This paper explores the present state of institutional discipline regarding sexual assaults on campus and the impact of the April 4, 2011 “Dear Colleague Letter” (DCL) issued by the Office for Civil Rights of the Department of Education on this problem. The paper then discusses the applicable Title IX standards and the procedural due process rights for the accused in campus sexual assault cases. The paper explores colleges’ responses to the DCL and means for redress for the accused under Title IX. The author argues that the DCL improperly incentivizes colleges to convict the accused, and suggests that cases of ...


Affirmative Confusion: A Proposed Paradigm Shift In Higher Education Disciplinary Proceedings, Kendal Poirier 2016 University of Massachusetts School of Law

Affirmative Confusion: A Proposed Paradigm Shift In Higher Education Disciplinary Proceedings, Kendal Poirier

University of Massachusetts Law Review

This Note examines the codification of affirmative consent statutes in New York and California as well as the language of Title IX of Education Amendments of 1972, with the ultimate goal of demonstrating that the two statutory constructions cannot co-exist without jeopardizing accused students’ due process rights. During the course of a college or university disciplinary proceeding in an affirmative consent jurisdiction, the potential exists for a burden shift onto the accused student to affirmatively prove consent was obtained. Such a shift directly conflicts with Title IX mandates for prompt and equitable treatment. This Note proposes that in order to ...


Decoupling Vaccine Laws, Dorit Rubenstein Reiss 2016 UC Hastings College of the Law

Decoupling Vaccine Laws, Dorit Rubenstein Reiss

Boston College Law Review

School immunization requirements are an effective way of increasing vaccine rates and reducing outbreaks, but they may have a dark underside. Although such mandates protect the general public, the availability of exemptions may be open to exploitation as a tool to try to undermine other avenues for protecting the vaccine-deprived children themselves. This essay argues that exemptions from school immunization requirements should not be understood to limit the protections available to children due to a decision to withhold vaccines. The existence of an exemption should, however, prevent criminal prosecution if a child dies from a preventable disease, because a parent ...
