Kimberly Robinson

UVA Law professor Kimberly Jenkins Robinson discusses her chapter in the recent book, “A Federal Right to Education: Fundamental Questions for Our Democracy,” which she edited for NYU Press. Robinson says Congress could work with states and localities in an incremental fashion to close opportunity gaps. Robinson is the Elizabeth D. and Richard A. Merrill Professor of Law and a senior research fellow at the Learning Policy Institute.
