Dr. Weinberg has made presentations to various groups on the following topics:
Teaching is one of the most heavily regulated professions in this country. Teachers must constantly be aware of and balance students’ rights, state and federal regulations, local school district policies and mandates, and their ethical responsibilities.
Meanwhile, many teachers are not made aware of many of the legal frameworks in which they operate. Many teachers don’t know their own rights or the bounds of their students’ rights. Understanding the laws that affect them empowers teachers by giving them knowledge and makes them better teachers by helping them better understand their obligations and rights.
