The federal government’s impact on California education; Changes in immigration enforcement

Original Air Date: March 22, 2017

Although education policy is largely left to the discretion of the states, the federal government still plays a large role in shaping education policy in California through funding and the enforcement of federal laws. Since the transition of power in Washington began last November, there have been many open questions about future federal education policy and funding, including questions surrounding school vouchers, Title I dollars, and teachers association dues, as well as questions about the status of undocumented students in California schools. In this one-hour webcast, a panel of school attorneys discuss:

  • Changes in immigration enforcement at the federal level and its impact on California students and schools
  • How school districts can respond to federal immigration enforcement actions
  • How the new administration’s U.S. Department of Education might affect education policy in California, and how state education leaders might respond
This webcast is moderated by CSBA Staff Attorney Mike Ambrose, and features the following attorneys:

  • Namita Brown, Fagen Friedman and Fulfrost
  • Gabriel Sandoval, Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo
