"The Constitution of Public Schools"
A Conversation with Justin Driver, Harry N. Wyatt Professor of Law
Join leading constitutional scholar Professor Driver and your fellow alumni for a lively discussion of his new book, The Schoolhouse Gate: Public Education, the Supreme Court, and the Battle for the American Mind.
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. In his provocative new book, The Schoolhouse Gate, Justin Driver highlights the gripping personal narratives behind landmark clashes, and warns that the repeated failure to honor students' rights threatens our basic constitutional order.
