Event Details

University of Richmond School of Law and Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race & Justice

Presented by the University of Richmond School of Law and the Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice at Harvard Law School

This conference will explore the condition of public education 40 years after San Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez, 411 U.S. 1(1973). The Rodriguez case, considered one of the major civil rights setbacks in recent decades, held that the federal constitution did not guarantee a right to education. The conference will bring together scholars, educators, and practitioners to examine the state of educational opportunity in the United States, to offer a critique of the effectiveness of existing efforts to advance equal educational opportunity and to develop and analyze novel approaches to achieving this important national goal.
