  • Educational podcast provides insights on latest court cases and helps guide school superintendents and administrators through quickly changing regulatory landscape

    To help school districts stay abreast of the latest court decisions and agency guidance and provide insights on best practices for handling today's most complex issues, Walter | Haverfield education law attorneys Miriam Pearlmutter and Lisa Woloszynek have launched "Education Law Update", a podcast series covering an array of timely issues.

    The legal challenges facing schools today are more numerous and complex than ever before. Transgender students, cyberbullying, social media protocols and a significant increase in the needs of special education students are just a few of the many issues facing schools of all sizes in both urban and rural settings. Add to that the rapidly changing rules and government regulations and it's clear that school officials have more to handle than what already busy schedules can accommodate.

    The "Education Law Update" podcast, which is believed to be the first of its kind specifically targeting school districts, is just one more way that Walter | Haverfield is reaching out to enhance the understanding of the challenges schools face today. Walter | Haverfield's education law attorneys also provide information to school districts through legal updates presented at a variety of local, statewide and national conferences. The "Education Law Update" podcast series provides educators an opportunity to get legal updates from the comfort of their offices, homes or cars.

    The first topics covered in the Education Law Update podcast include Section 504 Plans and IEPs, transgender students, and religion in the classroom. "Education Law Update" is available on iTunes and Stitcher, or you can link to the podcast from Walter | Haverfield's website at walterhav.com/services/education#podcasts.
