Eradicating The School-To-Prison Pipeline Through A Comprehensive Approach To School Equity, Morgan Craven, Paula Johnson, Terrence Wilson Jul 2020

Eradicating The School-To-Prison Pipeline Through A Comprehensive Approach To School Equity, Morgan Craven, Paula Johnson, Terrence Wilson

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review

When examining the school-to-prison pipeline, most focus on issues of exclusionary discipline, the presence of police in schools, or the use of intrusive surveillance and monitoring systems. To close the pipeline, agencies, educators, and advocates must also examine other, broader factors that contribute to educational inequities. We argue in this article that eradicating the school-to-prison pipeline involves tackling the legal structures, policies, practices, and beliefs that create harmful discipline systems and other linked inequitable systems. With Arkansas schools as our illustration, we explain how inequities in discipline, funding, and school accountability create a situation primed to send students into the ...

The Ripples Of Backlash: Same-Sex Marriage, The Election Of 2004, And The Evolution Of Constitutional Law, Earl M. Maltz Apr 2020

The Ripples Of Backlash: Same-Sex Marriage, The Election Of 2004, And The Evolution Of Constitutional Law, Earl M. Maltz

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review

The significance of the events of 2016 for the future development of constitutional law has been widely discussed in both scholarly commentaries and the popular press. After the death of Justice Antonin Scalia early in that year, many progressives looked forward hopefully to the prospect of regaining control of the Supreme Court for the first time in almost fifty years. However, after the Senate refused to consider Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to replace Justice Scalia, the surprise victory of Donald Trump in the presidential election led instead to further consolidation of the conservative dominance of the Court ...

Is It Time For Arkansas To Consider Pretrial Reform?, Judge Cindy Grace Thyer Apr 2020

Is It Time For Arkansas To Consider Pretrial Reform?, Judge Cindy Grace Thyer

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review

Approximately two-thirds of the national jail population consists of pretrial detainees––people who are constitutionally presumed innocent of the charges they are facing. Many, if not most, of these individuals are incarcerated because they are unable to post money bail. This article explores some of the complexities of pretrial release/detention reform. It begins with the history of bail from its early use in England through its grounding in each American state’s constitution, with special emphasis upon the reforms that have occurred in the American system of pretrial release since the 1920s. Drawing on information and experiences from states ...

Four Pathways Of Undermining Board Of Trustees Of The University Of Alabama V. Garrett, Derek Warden Apr 2020

Four Pathways Of Undermining Board Of Trustees Of The University Of Alabama V. Garrett, Derek Warden

University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review

In Board of Trustees of the University of Alabama v. Garrett, the Supreme Court held that Title I of the ADA did not validly abrogate state sovereign immunity; and as such, a plaintiff could not obtain damages against the states or sue the states directly for injunctive relief. Many courts and scholars have read Garrett as sounding the death knell for ADA Title I government employee plaintiffs. This article shows that such fears are misplaced. Indeed, this article offers four pathways around Garrett that show Title I and its requirements are very much alive and well. First, the article shows ...
