OPLC Attorney Speaks About School to Prison at Columbus Metropolitan Club
OPLC Attorney Sarah Biehl spoke on a Columbus Metropolitan Club panel at the Athletic Club of Columbus on Wednesday, October 24, 2012. Sarah appeared with Ohio State University Moritz College of Law professor and incoming Ohio School Boards Association President Charlie Wilson, Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio Executive Director Renuka Mayadev, and Ohio State University Moritz College of Law clinical professor Kim Jordan. During the presentation, Sarah highlighted her recent research (compiled here, in a joint issue brief OPLC published with Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio) on how the overuse of harsh school discipline harms Ohio children, particularly African-American children, children with disabilities, and low-income children.
