Jenkins - Supreme court case - There was a law that provided more funding, school standards increased in minority schools – Missouri v.

Proposition 227 Proposed by Ron Unz in California. Declared bilingual edu. to be prohibited. When it passed here, he went to AZ and banned bilingual edu. there as well. Then it passed in MA too. He tried to pass it in CO too but it failed. Lots of efforts to repeal 227. Lau v. Nichols If I’m giving you edu. in a language you don’t understand then I’m discriminating against you. Materials adoption process in the This school district decided that they wanted to replace all the books their LA Unified School District (2013) students carry around with tablets that have all of their textbooks pre-loaded onto them. What LA did, is they just went straight to Apple and Pearson and said we want you to do this. They didn’t ask multiple businesses for a bid, which tends to lead to better products. LA district spent a TON of money. When they gave them to the students, a lot of classrooms weren’t even using them because the curriculum that Pearson gave them was so bad. Students were cracking/breaking them, not using them for school work. This was a good idea, but ended up being a huge mistake.
