Rodriguez at 50
A new essay by institute director Kimberly Jenkins Robinson explores lessons learned from the Supreme Court’s decision in San Antonio School District v. Rodriguez, which refused to recognize a federal right to education just over 50 years ago.
The Education Rights Institute aims to expand the opportunity for every student in the United States to enjoy a right to a high-quality education.
Courses, clinics and extracurricular activities offer students opportunities to learn the law and gain practical experience.
“Guaranteeing a federal right of every student to receive a high-quality education would provide the missing building blocks for our nation to enjoy a thriving democracy, robust economy and just society.”
—Professor Kimberly Jenkins Robinson, Director of the Education Rights Institute
