Education should help young people develop knowledge and skills to make positive contributions to their communities, participate in a self-governing democracy and obtain meaningful employment. Unfortunately, large percentages of North Carolinas nearly 1.5 million K-12 public school students regularly experience denial of enrollment, academic failure, overly harsh discipline, unaddressed bullying, and discrimination.
Now more than ever, North Carolinas K-12 students need the help of advocates who are knowledgeable in education-related state and federal statutes, regulations, and case law, as well as equipped with casework tools and proven litigation strategies.
This comprehensive volume provides essential resources to student and parent attorneys and others advocating for student success, including juvenile defenders, guardians ad litem, grassroots organizers, and educators.
Authored and edited by seasoned practitioners, this resource provides an overview of students rights and offers guidance on how to enforce and seek remedies for violations of those rights.
