The Right to Public Education
Join the ACS Knoxville, Michigan, Nashville, and Northeast Ohio Chapters for a discussion with Gregory G. Little on two groundbreaking decisions from the Sixth Circuit. These cases, filed on behalf of children in Detroit and all children exposed to lead in the Flint, Michigan water crisis, resulted in a decision declaring that there is a constitutional right to literacy, a ruling that will likely further our national discourse concerning educational equity.
Gregory will also address the potential legal impact of school closings resulting from the pandemic and will overview how and where lawsuits might occur.
