ASBO at 100: A Supreme Court Retrospective on Equal Educational Opportunities
Russo, Charles J.
School Business Affairs, v75 n1 p36-39 Jan 2009
The Supreme Court has played a crucial role in shaping education over ASBO International's first century of existence. Accordingly, this column, the first of two on the Supreme Court and education, inaugurates ASBO's centennial year with a retrospective look at key cases that were litigated in K-12 school settings around the issue of equal educational opportunities. In light of the role that the Supreme Court has assumed in shaping American education, this column reviews key cases dealing with equal educational opportunities since the line of cases beginning with "Brown" set the tone for much that has occurred in its wake. After highlighting the Court's major rulings on school desegregation, the column briefly reviews its only case on school finance because funding plays a major role in seeking to provide equal educational opportunities for children. The final part of the article examines the Court's litigation on equal educational opportunities for females and students with disabilities.
