Michael Rebell and his students aim for a case at the Supreme Court

“This year, in Rebell’s course “Schools, Courts and Civic Participation,” 16 students – eight from Teachers College and eight from Columbia Law School – are studying up on legal history and the separation of powers and searching for a plaintiff. By June 2018, they hope to file a complaint in a federal district court arguing that local schools are not adequately preparing young people as citizens – the first step toward reaching the Supreme Court to establish a Constitutional right to a quality education.” 

Joe Levine, TC Executive Director of External Affairs, writes about this interesting idea in his TC news article "Making a Federal Case: Michael Rebell and his students hope to convince the Supreme Court that education is a Constitutional right." Read the whole article HERE.
