Overlawyering the schools



Over at Phil Howard's Common Good, they have collected all the laws and regulations governing a typical public high school in New York City. On their new website, "Over Ruled," you can access explanations and commentary by type of regulation as well as follow interactive flow charts explaining the labyrinthine process for, e.g., suspending a student. Another look, both comical and depressing, about the effects of overlawyering on society.
