Right to a "Basic Minimum" Education? What Does the Constitution Say?
Does the Constitution guarantee a right to a “basic minimum education”? How will a court’s decision affect the quality of education provided by public schools? Join us for a discussion with experts in education policy and law as they analyze the 6th Circuit’s recent ruling in Gary B. v. Whitmer, in which the court held that Detroit students’ Fourteenth Amendment rights were violated due to the school district’s poor learning environments and educational outcomes, and its implications for state’s rights and public education. That decision has been challenged and will be reconsidered by the Sixth Circuit en banc. Our experts will share their insights into the likely judicial outcomes of the impending hearing.
