Public Education, the Supreme Court, and the Battle for the American Mind

The Torch Club, New York, NY

Presented with the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law and the NYU School of Law ACS Student Chapter.

Justin Driver maintains that since the 1970s, the Supreme Court has regularly abdicated responsibility in protecting students’ rights, risking transforming public schools into Constitution-free zones and in turn threatening the basic constitutional order for all Americans. How has corporal punishment, random drug tests, strip searches, and other questionable actions taken by educators passed legal muster? Join us to discuss this and other incendiary legal debates regarding public schools and its effects on American society.
