Wondering how the Supreme Court's latest rulings could ripple through the realm of higher education? Together with expert Peter Lake, we take a deep dive into the sea of legal complexities and contentious decisions impacting our colleges and universities. From the landmark cases of Students for Fair Admissions against the University of North Carolina and Harvard College to the reexamination of Justice O'Connor's controversial 25-year shot clock, we break down how these rulings could dramatically reshape the face of education in America. We also ponder the potential for Congress to shift the landscape even further by amending the Civil Rights Acts, and possibly Title IV.
The conversation doesn't end there. We challenge the notion of academic freedom, scrutinize the legacy issue in admissions, and confront the fear of exclusion - a sentiment amplified by the ongoing pandemic. Also, we make sense of Amy Comey-Barrie's dissent in the Counterman ruling and her stance on digital speech. We shed light on the potential repercussions this could have on the freedom of religious and corporate speech, and how it could influence the spirit of the law. Prepare to have your understanding of the education system flipped on its head. This episode is a must-listen for anyone with a stake in the future of education.
