U.S. Federal Discrimination Law and Language and Culture Restrictions in K-12 Private Schools
Mawdsley, Ralph; Cumming, Joy
International Journal of Educational Reform, v22 n1 p24-36 Win 2013
Section 1981 prohibits discrimination concerning the right to contract, and Title VI prohibits discrimination on the basis of the basis of race and national origin. The two cases that form the basis for the discussion in this article--"Silva v. St. Anne Catholic School" and "Doe v. Kamehameha Schools"--address whether culture and language can affect the legality of policies that might otherwise appear to be discriminatory.
