    Law reform efforts vary as to the role they assign to markets and money in improving the field of public education, but one thing is certain: debates about markets and money are not going away. As alternative models of schooling (such as charters, publicly funded voucher programs, and online school systems) continue to grow, they are disrupting traditional public education in ever increasing ways. From stressing budgets to sinking enrollment, municipalities, counties, and states are struggling with how to fund and operate new schooling models while striving for high quality in their traditional public schools. Meanwhile, litigation efforts challenging state funding systems proceed in both traditional and new formats, and questions about equity pervade the debate. This session will explore these and related topics.

    Business Meeting will be held on Friday, January 4, 2019 from 7 - 8:30 am. 

    Papers from this program will be published in Georgetown Journal of Poverty Law and Policy.
