This book explores the application of Scalia's textualism and originalism to education law and reflects upon Scalia's teachings and his pedagogy. Education law may seem to be an odd vehicle for considering Scalia's constitutional approach, but thinking about schools requires attention to political fundamentals-freedom of speech, free exercise of religion, equality of opportunity, federalism, and the proper role of the expert. Legal scholars, philosophers, and political scientists provide both critiques and apologies for Scalia's approach.

Rezensionen
"Edited by a distinguished constitutional law scholar and a distinguished scholar of public education ... . these essays provide an excellent window into Scalia's jurisprudence. If a reader wants to understand what is distinctive about Sclaia's jurisprudence and why he is controversial, this short book is an excellent introduction. It is ideal for students of the Supreme Court and general readers who want an introduction to the intellectual currents swirling on the current Supreme Court." (M. M. Feeley, Choice, Vol. 56 (1), September, 2018)
