Law School And IPS Create Law-Themed Course Work For Kids
The McKinney School of Law is working with IPS to bring law school, to kids. Students at the Shortridge Magnet High School will have access to mentors and tutors who are in the legal profession.
The law-themed curriculum is also taught by McKinney school faculty.
Dr. Eugene White, Superintendent of IPS, says the two schools have been working on this idea for a long time, but the formalization of an agreement means the program will expand while continuing to educate kids on different facets of the legal system.
Ranging from law enforcement, to the courtroom, to public policy, kids have myriad options when it comes to government study, and understanding. The program is for students in 6th through 12th grades.
