“The Continuing Transformation of K-12 Education Law: Beyond Vouchers and Charter Schools” 

 

Over the past two decades, the landscape of American elementary and secondary education 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. 

 

Professor Garnett will discuss this changing landscape in her lecture, “The Continuing Transformation of K-12 Education Law: Beyond Vouchers and Charter Schools.”  She will explain how changes to K-12 education resulted from education reformers embracing a child-focused, rather than a sector-focused, reform agenda.  This transformation of K-12 education may have profound implications for education law, including opening the possibility of faith-based, state-supported charter schools.

 

A well-known scholar of education and property law, Professor Garrett has published two books in these areas: Lost Classrooms, Lost Community: Catholic Schools’ Importance in Urban America (University of Chicago Press 2014), and Ordering the City: Land Use, Policing and the Restoration of Urban America (Yale University Press 2009).  She is also widely published in leading law reviews.

 

The free, public lecture is a part of the Stranahan National Issues Forum and is sponsored by the College of Law and its chapter of the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies. Food and beverages will be provided.
