Lawsuit Settlement Significant for Education of Expelled Students
Center for Children's Advocacy
July 31, 2018
Alicia B. vs. Malloy, the Center for Children’s Advocacy lawsuit challenging the inadequate education of expelled students in Connecticut, has settled. This settlement is a significant step forward for the education of expelled students in Connecticut, who are disproportionally students of color.
The Center for Children’s Advocacy (CCA), with co-counsel National Center for Youth Law (NCYL) and K&L Gates LLP, represented two Black middle school students who effectively received no education during their expulsions, despite their right to education established by the Connecticut State Constitution.
