New Podcast Chalk and Gavel Explores Ed Law and Policy

University of Florida Educational Leadership and Policy assistant professor, Dr. Christopher Thomas, recently launched a new podcast, Chalk and Gavel, that explores the intersection of education policy and the law. With his co-cost, Dr. Thomas provides timely explorations of specific cases in education law.  From the role of the Supreme Court to decisions that affect how educational leaders approach their day to day work, Chalk and Gavel provides engaging takes on the law and education.

Dr. Thomas, JD, PhD, teaches courses in both the master’s, specialist, and doctoral programs in Educational Leadership and Policy at UF. He notes, “Everything in schools is done for a reason, and those reasons often have legal dimensions. We want to make those connections more visible so that educators feel empowered to navigate the law in ways that advance their educational goals.”
