AACTE is excited to announce that one of the nation’s foremost experts in education law and policy, Derek W. Black, J.D., is the opening keynote speaker for its 74th Annual Meeting, March 4 – 6, in New Orleans, LA. An outspoken champion for the importance of public education, Black will take center stage on Friday, March 4, to discuss his latest book, Schoolhouse Burning: Public Education and the Assault on American Democracy, and discuss how current education trends represent a retreat from our nation’s foundational commitments to democracy and public education.
Black is currently a professor at the University of South Carolina School of Law and focuses on school funding and equality for disadvantaged students. He has published more than 30 scholarly articles in the nation’s top legal journals, and his research has been cited several times in the federal courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. Black began his career at Howard University School of Law, where he founded and directed the Education Rights Center. Prior to teaching, he litigated education cases at the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
