Total Credits: 6.0 Professional Practice
 
Program details:

·         The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and other laws offer rights and protections to students with disabilities. Gain a practical understanding of the relevant law and strategies to address and prevent school-related misconduct and behavior.

·         Raise The Age (RTA) in New York has been long overdue but is finally here, albeit in a somewhat watered-down version that still needs work. This presentation will focus on the arguments that have been made against RTA, the science and empirical data that support it, the role of race in this discussion, and a practical review of the new legislation and what it  means for our youth.

·         Panelists will argue a case before the audience (the court), addressing the rights of teachers and students to engage in school activities involving highly controversial and contemporary issues and administrators' rights and obligations to limit them. Forum members will each be given a bench memo that summarizes the relevant case law to encourage lively discussion and questioning of both attorneys during and after oral argument. Ultimately, the court will be asked to issue and explain the basis of their final decision. The forum and materials are easily adapted for classroom use to encourage lively student discussion on the limits of free speech in the public school. For attorneys, the program will include an interactive oral argument with up-to-date case law on highly controversial and current legal questions affecting public education today.

·         A brief overview of the science that supports the reality of the impact of bias, anxiety and threat on the pursuit of equity and high performing outcomes to address racial disparities.
