March 9: San Francisco - A Progressive Take on Education Reform Litigation

The Vergara plaintiffs’ dubious challenge to California’s teacher tenure laws has captured national media interest, while ongoing efforts by long-time progressive advocacy groups to achieve educational adequacy and equity through the courts receive far less attention. What are the real challenges facing California’s public schools? What should progressive education reform look like? And what are the best strategies for using litigation to achieve progressive education reform? This panel features perspectives from lawyers involved in major education reform litigation, as well as the Vergara case.
Bring your lunch and join us for a panel discussion.
