The School Law Blog is 1 Year Old Today

By Mark Walsh — January 07, 2009 1 min read

Today is the anniversary of the launch of The School Law Blog.

It was an auspicious day on Jan. 7, 2008, because a federal appeals court issued a major ruling about the No Child Behind Act that day, just the kind of big school law news I was hoping for. My blog post about the NCLB ruling from that day is here, and the latest post on that case, which was reheard en banc last month by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, is here.

Meanwhile, Education Week is releasing its annual Quality Counts report today, with a focus this year on English-language learners. I wrote this piece about the legal landscape for bilingual education, English-language learners, and undocumented immigrants.

Now, it’s on to Year Two for the blog.

A version of this news article first appeared in The School Law Blog.
