On Oct. 13, in recognition of the 20th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Leandro v. State, the UNC Center for Civil Rights and the UNC Education Law & Policy Society, Black Law Students Association, and National Lawyers Guild are sponsoring “Leandro at 20: Two Decades in Pursuit of a Sound Basic Education.” This half-day conference will feature individual presenters, two panels, lunch, and an opportunity for engaged discussion among participants. The conference features presenters who have played an integral role in education in North Carolina over the last two decades, including June Atkinson, Jack Boger, Ann McColl, Howard Lee, and Bob Orr. In addition, Professors Erika Wilson (UNC) and Derek Black (USC) will discuss future challenges for education in NC.
Our hope is to engage law students, education advocates, school administrators, and community members in this exciting event.
