Walsh, Camille – History of Education Quarterly, 2021
This article argues that the now-widespread US practice of residency-based tuition differentials for public higher education institutions is a twentieth-century form of higher education exceptionalism carved out in law and state policy, contradicting otherwise cherished and protected rights of free movement. This contradiction has been enabled in…

When the South Carolina legislature created the anti-NAACP oath in 1956, teachers across the state lost their positions.
