New Course Focuses on Improving Public Schools

Summer 2011

Law School students in Professor James S. Liebman’s new Public Sector Structural Change course addressed the real-world problems currently facing
grade-school education on the city, state, and national levels. The spring course was held in conjunction with Professors Charles F. Sabel and William H. Simon’s Deals: Public-Sector Problem Solving class. Students were pushed to use their skills in law, business, and quantitative research to suggest solutions to challenges faced by
public schools.
