Rebell will be speaking at the Harvard Law School about his forthcoming article "The Right to Comprehensive Educational Opportunity" which will be published early next year by the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review. Reactions to Rebell's analysis of the statutory and constitutional bases for guaranteeing all students from poverty backgrounds the range of resources they need in areas such as early childhood, health, extended learning time and family support, will be provided by a distinguished panel consisting of:
