About the Webinar Series


Developed by the leadership of the Section's Education Committee,  this series—Education and Democracy—will explore the significance of access to quality education as a prerequisite for meaningful participation in American democracy. Building upon the U.S. Supreme Court's observation in the case of Brown v. Board of Education that "education is the very foundation of good citizenship," this series examines how education shapes democratic participation in a variety of significant ways.
