The Role of Law and Courts in Creating Trauma-Sensitive Schools
The heart of the trauma-sensitive schools movement is the important work educators do to create learning environments where all students feel safe and supported. However, decisions made by judges and lawmakers help set the conditions in which this work takes place, and can have a profound impact on how educators do their work.
Attorney and law professor Michael Gregory will introduce recent legal developments related to trauma-sensitive schools and discuss their potential impacts. In particular, he will provide an overview of two recent federal court cases in which advocates have attempted to secure legal rights to trauma-sensitive education for large groups of students.
