"The Future of the Supreme Court: The Constitution of Public Schools"
featuring Justin Driver, Harry N. Wyatt Professor of Law

Supreme Court decisions affecting the constitutional rights of students in the nation's public schools have consistently generated bitter controversy. From racial segregation to unauthorized immigration, from antiwar protests to compulsory flag salutes, from economic inequality to teacher-led prayer: these are among the defining cultural issues that the Court has addressed in elementary and secondary schools. Drawing from his provocative new book, The Schoolhouse Gate, Justin Driver will discuss the historic legal battles waged over education that continue to threaten our basic constitutional order.
