Please welcome the Education Law Prof Blog to the internet. The blog was launched on April 30th with the following statement of purpose:
Welcome to the Education Law Prof Blog. On this blog, we plan to highlight education law developments, legal scholarship, research, conferences, and more. Our nation's educational laws have shaped our history, challenged our beliefs, and, at times, defined us. Education law continues to be a dynamic and rich topic, and we hope that this blog will be a place where advocates and scholars can discuss emerging issues and share information. We welcome contributions and ideas from our visitors. If you have recent articles, cases, news, or have a fresh perspective on an important educational issue, please contact us about having it posted. We are also open to having guest bloggers, so if you are interested, please contact us in the left editors' column. Thank you for visiting, and we look forward to hearing from you.
The blog is edited by my colleague Derek Black (who also teaches Evidence and recently completed an Education Law casebook) as well as LaJuana Davis from the Cumberland School of Law and Areto Imoukhuede from Nova Southeastern.
Already, the blog has tackled a good number of education law issues. Yesterday alone, the editors posted entries on discrimination against LGBT students, pre-kindergarten funding, and virtual charter schools. If you are at all interested in education law, the Education Law Prof Blog is definitely worth a look.
