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

Cyberbullies On Campus, 37 U. Tol. L. Rev. 51 (2005), Darby Dickerson
My goals in this article are to introduce the law school community to the problem of cyberbullies, and to alert deans, administrators, and professors to the risks associated with this form of bullying-so that the problem can be acknowledged and addressed, and so that we may all learn and work in as safe an environment as possible.

Case law is a tangible tool school leaders can consider when designing FBA and BIP policies to address social, emotional and behavioral challenges. In addition, one intangible consideration is nurturing the relationship between school leaders and parents. When school leaders, parents, and attorneys work collaboratively to support students who have behavioral needs in a reasonable and timely fashion, the student’s needs are addressed earlier, parents can become active participants in the child’s program, and school leaders can minimize the risk of using valuable resources in court costs and attorney fees.
Title Ix And Procedural Fairness: Why Disciplined-Student Litigation Does Not Undermine The Role Of Title Ix In Campus Sexual Assault, 2017 Western New England University School of Law
Title Ix And Procedural Fairness: Why Disciplined-Student Litigation Does Not Undermine The Role Of Title Ix In Campus Sexual Assault, Erin E. Buzuvis
As a matter of civil rights, Title IX mandates that federally funded educational institutions address reports of sexual assault. Often disciplined-student plaintiffs argue unsuccessfully that the college or university’s decision to discipline them is tainted by “reverse” sex discrimination. This Article examines the recent spate of disciplined-student cases in an effort to harmonize Title IX compliance with the procedural rights of students accused of sexual assault. It provides a historical context for Title IX’s application to sexual assault on campuses and the requirements the law imposes on the educational institutions. Next, it describes the role Title IX plays ...

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 ...

The Policy Of Federal Student Loans: Looking Backward And Looking Forward, 2017 Washington University School of Law
The Policy Of Federal Student Loans: Looking Backward And Looking Forward, Aaron Mohr
Washington University Journal of Law & Policy
This Note addresses the discrepancies between inflation rates and the cost of higher learning, particularly as a new generation of students finds it more difficult to pursue additional education because student loan burdens continue to outpace real wages. Mohr examines various contributing factors in this imbalance, including rises in tuition costs, the widespread availability of loans, and the difficulty in discharging these debts, to identify the source of the problem. Mohr suggests that the underlying issue is the rising costs of higher education as a function of the availability of loans, and recommends a system of limits on borrowing that ...
Assessing General Education Teacher Training On Idea And Section 504 Law, 2017 Governors State University
Assessing General Education Teacher Training On Idea And Section 504 Law, Yolian Cintron
All Capstone Projects
The purpose of this study is to assess how much general education teachers actually know about the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 in order to identify training needs for general education teachers regarding these two laws. A survey was created to cover several areas within the legal mandates of IDEA law (2004) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Results showed that teachers have a lot to learn about 1) the referral, assessment, and placement process; and 2) requirements of the IEP team meeting and the IEP document; and ...

Report: Tying Teacher Evaluation To Student Test Performance In New York State, 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 ...
Denying Certiorari In Bell V. Itawamba County School Board: A Missed Opportunity To Clarify Students’ First Amendment Rights In The Digital Age, Elizabeth A. Shaver
Brooklyn Law Review
In the last decade, the federal circuit courts have grappled with the issue whether, and to what extent, school officials constitutionally may discipline students for their off-campus electronic speech. Before 2015, three federal circuit courts had extended school authority to off-campus electronic speech by applying a vague test that allows school officials to reach far beyond the iconic “schoolhouse gate” referenced in the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District. Two other federal circuits had avoided the issue altogether by deciding the cases before them on other grounds. In 2015, the Fifth Circuit ...
Lost & Found: Order In The Court -- The Party Game, 2017 Rochester Institute of Technology
Lost & Found: Order In The Court -- The Party Game, Owen Gottlieb, Ian Schreiber
Presentations and other scholarship
Lost & Found is a strategy card-to-mobile game series that teaches medieval religious legal systems with attention to period accuracy and cultural and historical context.
The Lost & Found games project seeks to expand the discourse around religious legal systems, to enrich public conversations in a variety of communities, and to promote greater understanding of the religious traditions that build the fabric of the United States. Comparative religious literacy can build bridges between and within communities and prepare learners to be responsible citizens in our pluralist democracy.
The second game in the series, Lost & Found: Order in the Court – the Party Game (jr. high and up) is a fast-paced storytelling and judging game. Players compete to tell the best story about how a medieval legal ruling may have gotten to court in the first place. The game emphasizes legal reasoning.
Both this game and the original Lost & Found games are set in Fustat (Old Cairo) in the 12th Century, a crossroads of religions. Lost & Found and Order in the Court both teach elements of the Mishneh Torah, the Jewish legal code written by Moses Maimonides. Maimonides was influenced by the works of Islamic legal scholars and philosophers such as Ibn Rushd (Averroes) and Al Ghazahli; he also influenced Islamic scholars.
Sector Agnosticism And The Coming Transformation Of Education Law, 2017 Notre Dame Law School
Sector Agnosticism And The Coming Transformation Of Education Law, Nicole Stelle Garnett
Over the past two decades, the landscape of elementary and secondary education in the United States has shifted dramatically, due to the emergence and expansion of privately provided, but publicly funded, schooling options (including both charter schools and private-school choice devices like vouchers, tax credits and educational savings accounts). This transformation in the delivery of K12 education is the result of a confluence of factors—discussed in detail below—that increasingly lead education reformers to support efforts to increase the number of high quality schools serving disadvantaged students across all three educational sectors, instead of focusing exclusively on reforming urban ...
It’S Not Complicated: Containing Criminal Law’S Influence On The Title Ix Process, 2017 University of Massachusetts School of Law - Dartmouth
It’S Not Complicated: Containing Criminal Law’S Influence On The Title Ix Process, Margaret B. Drew
Title IX processes that address campus sexual assault are undergoing dramatic changes in structure as well as in review. After receipt of the Department of Education’s 2011 “Dear Colleague” letter, colleges and universities were impelled to review how their institutions were implementing Title IX. From website information through decision making on alleged violations, the ways in which higher education addresses federally guided changes is a matter of national conversation. This essay addresses change in light of campus sexual assault allegations, and does not explicitly address other forms of Title IX complaints, such as athletic funding and opportunities. This essay ...

Inequitable Schools Demand A Federal Remedy, 2017 University of Richmond
Inequitable Schools Demand A Federal Remedy, Kimberly J. Robinson
Law Faculty Publications
It is not often that the U.S. Supreme Court admits that one of its previous decisions, especially one that shaped the fabric of our nation, was fundamentally wrong. One such instance occurred in 1954, when the court famously declared, in Brown v. Board of Education, that the doctrine of “separate but equal” public schools for black children and white children was unconstitutional. In Brown, the court overturned, for public schools, its approval of this doctrine in Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) and established that segregated schools violated the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The court also proclaimed that ...

Meeting The Needs Of Students With Disabilities, Charles J. Russo, Allan G. Osborne Jr.
Educational Leadership Faculty Publications
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA, 2005) requires states, through local school boards, to provide students with disabilities with a free appropriate public education (FAPE) in the least restrictive environment consistent with the content of their Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). As important as it is to educate students with disabilities, the cost of serving these children is much higher than that of their peers in regular education.
Most recently, the Tenth Circuit upheld Rowley’s “some educational benefit” standard in Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District RE-1 (2015). In Endrew F., the panel affirmed that a school board ...

Civil Rights And The Charter School Choice: How Stricter Standards For Charter Schools Can Aid Educational Equity, Rachel E. Rubinstein
Law Student Publications
This paper analyzes the way variations in charter-enabling legislation may exacerbate segregation and how federal and state reforms could better utilize the charter system to further integration. Part I discusses the history of school choice and the social science underlying its potential as a vehicle for integration as well as further segregation. Part II reviews research on charter school demographics and the effectiveness of relevant civil rights statutes. Part III analyzes themes in local charter legislation that can influence charter school segregation by limiting accessibility for low income families and students with disabilities. Finally, Part IV offers recommendations for policy ...
