Reauthorizing ESEA

The reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act was a decade in the making. “Everyone knew what was wrong and not working, and that it required legislative change, but there was no political capital for the change,” says Michael Zola, NSBA’s associate executive director of federal advocacy and public policy.

School boards and the First Amendment

School board members and their First Amendment rights was the topic of a Friday session at the Council of School Attorneys (COSA) School Law Seminar, held in conjunction with NSBA’s Annual Conference in Boston.

The session was presented by Karla Schultz of Walsh, Gallegos, Trevino, Russo, & Kyle, PC, in Austin, Texas, and Mark Tilley of the Texas Association of School Boards, also in Austin.

Both presenters used case law as examples of what school board members, as elected official and private citizens, can and cannot do under their right to free speech.
