(p.124) Chapter Six Advancing Civic Preparation through the State Courts
Flunking Democracy

Michael A. Rebell

University of Chicago Press

Chapter Six proposes remedies that the state courts should consider in fiscal equity and education adequacy cases in order to promote civic preparation in the schools. These suggestions include issuing general remedial decrees that mandate greater attention to civic preparation needs but vest substantial discretion in state officials to develop and implement appropriate standards, to provide necessary resources, and to assess results. Some state courts might also consider issuing more specific remedial orders, depending on the strength of the evidence in particular cases. For example, they might require schools to provide instruction in media literacy or to offer an appropriate range of extracurricular activities and opportunities for involvement in community activities to all students. The chapter also discusses actions that state courts can take to promote increased diversity, desegregation, and inclusion.
