David Gröshöff, Child, Please - Stop the Anti-Queer School Bullycides: A Modest Proposal to Hoist Social Conservatives by their Own "God, Guns and Gays" Petard. 1 1 U. Md. L.J. Race Religion Gender & Class 151 (201 1). This article discusses the systematic failure to defend queer students against hostile school ground violence and "bullycide," and the failure to defend these students' rights to enjoy an education granted under each state constitution. The author urges that the language used in the pro-queer argument be shifted to a more conservative archetype to provide better protection through legal self-defense.

Mae C. Quinn, The Fallout from our Blackboard Battlegrounds: A Call for Withdrawal and a New Way Forward, 15 J. Gender Race & Just. 541 (2012). This article discusses the modern effects of a 1973 Time article on reducing violence in the educational environment to improve the quality of education. The author shows that efforts to improve the educational environment have been done at the expense of poor and minority children. The author further discusses the hostilities these children face at school today and urges the current practices and policies be changed. The article suggests that these practices be changed to help reduce the violent and disruptive behaviors of these children, rather than push them out of the educational setting.

Meredith R Richards, Kori J. Stroub, Julian Vasquez Heilig & Michael R. Volonnino, Achieving Diversity in the Parents Involved Era: Evidence for Geographic Integration Plans in Metropolitan School Districts, 14 Berkeley J. Afr.-Am. L. & Policy 65 (2012). This article discusses the diminishing effects of mandated school desegregation in the post-Brown era. The author recognizes the positive effects Brown had on reducing school segregation, but notes that in light of more recent Supreme Court decisions such as Parents Involved and Meredith, schools are becoming re-segregated. The article explores the Berkeley Integration Plan's effort to legally reverse school re-segregation.

Derek W. Black, Education's Elusive Future, Storied Past, and the Fundamental Inequities Between, 46 Ga. L. Rev. 557 (2012). This article explores the future of rights-based education and whether or not it will continue to progress. The author discusses the student rights protected through various historical reforms, focusing on desegregation, and how the reforms came to be. The author notes that progress often happens once the results of the previous reform are no longer suitable for the current socio-economic climate. This article suggests that education reform will continue to move forward based on the current needs of the educational system as it has in the past.

Martha Minow, "A Proper Objective ": Constitutional Commitment and Educational Opportunity After Boiling v. Sharpe and Parents Involved in Community Schools, 55 How. L.J. 575 (2012). This article focuses on the ways in which constitutional interpretations have affected the many approaches to school desegregation. Specifically, the article looks to how these interpretations and decisions have varying meanings within certain contexts, including voluntary desegregation. By examining constitutional interpretation throughout history, the author outlines three avenues for addressing the constitutional treatment of equal educational opportunity.

Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, The Dream Act: We All Benefit, 26 Notre Dame J.L. Ethics & Pub. Policy 459 (2012). This article outlines the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, also known as the DREAM act. By arguing that the Catholic church can and should play an instrumental role in passing this Act, is the author proposes that presidents of Catholic universities should make this issue a priority. The author suggests the Church and its subsidiaries would immensely benefit from the passing of this Act and universities should commit resources and political power to support the cause. …
