Professor Gebhardt, Kathleen Education Law Dear class,

Welcome to education law! I have not yet posted the syllabus as I am waiting for confirmation on two guest speakers that will determine the order of a few of the classes.

Below is the reading assignment. On the assignment for the ECS website, I only want you to skim the information so that you get a sense of the differences across the states so that we can discuss some of these on Monday.

The text book reading is minimal: Biegel pp. 1-9.

Please also read this article from the New Yorker magazine. It gives you context for one of the cases we will study as well as some additional background on some seminal education cases.

I am currently out of the country and dont have great access to my e-mail. But Ill try to check it when I can so if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I know this assignment is arriving late, but I hope it wont take much more than an hour to read.

See you all Monday!
