Award-winning constitutional law scholar, Justin Driver presents an engaging book that aims to vindicate the rights of public school students. From racial segregation to unauthorized immigration, antiwar protests to compulsory flag salutes, economic inequality to teacher-led prayer: these are but a few of the cultural anxieties that the Supreme Court has addressed regarding schools. The Schoolhouse Gate gives a provocative account of the historic legal battles and illuminates contemporary disputes that continue to fracture the nation.
