Professor Barbara Fedders, who teaches in the Youth Justice Clinic, has recently published important scholarship and commentary on the school-to-prison pipeline and has presented her work at law schools across the country.
She is the co-editor (with
Jason Langberg of Advocates for Children's Services, Legal Aid, and Christine
Bischoff of the N.C. Justice Center) of the forthcoming "Guide to StudentAdvocacy in North Carolina," published by the North Carolina Bar Association Foundation. She is co-author of two chapters in this
book, one chapter on "Student Advocacy Strategies that Protect and Advance Clients'
Rights in Delinquency Courts" and another on "Education for Youth in Out-of-Home
Placements." The book is due out in May.
Professor Fedders also co-authored (with Jason
Langberg) an op-ed on punitive school discipline policies entitled "Progress on NC School
Suspensions, Violence, but More to Do" which was published in the March 20, 2015, edition of the
News and Observer (Raleigh, N.C.).
In addition, she has presented her scholarship at a program sponsored by North Carolina Central University's Juvenile Justice Institute and at a symposium on Education Issues in the Law sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Law Review.
