September 15, 2016
2:30 PM - 3:45 PM
View Recording  

Please join the Council of the Great City Schools and Husch Blackwell for a webinar on how recent and upcoming Supreme Court decisions may affect public education. For example, the Court’s decision to uphold the race-conscious admissions policies of the University of Texas also affects public school districts. The Court also decided employment cases last term that could benefit school districts in their role as employers. Other important High Court decisions have addressed search and seizure, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and voting rights.

The session will also cover special education cases that the Court declined to consider and conclude with a brief preview of the Court’s October 2016 term.


  • Overview of recent Supreme Court rulings
  • Discussion of cases the Court declined to review
  • A preview of the next term
