This graduate-level course will explore the history of The Student Transfer Law.
Emphasis will be placed on the Breitenfeld vs. School District of Clayton court decision (2013). This course will use the book “Transfers & Open Enrollment: The Denigration of Black School Communities” as a primary text to examine the short-term and long-term effects of student transfers, particularly on Black schools and communities. Students will analyze the challenges less-resourced school districts face in paying transportation and tuition costs for student transfers while also exploring Open Enrollment options for students. Through class discussions, readings, research, and other practical assignments, students will gain a deeper understanding of the complexities of educational policies and their effects on Black school communities.
