Salomone Lectures in Europe

Catching up on some older news, in March Rosemary Salomone completed a whirlwind set of lectures in Europe. On March 27, 2012, Rosemary gave separate presentations in both Bilbao and Madrid on “The Law and Politics of Single-Sex Schooling: Lessons from the United States” at the invitation of the European Association of Single-Sex Education. For those of you who are curious, those cities are about 250 miles apart. The next day, Rosemary was in France at the University of Strasbourg, where she gave a presentation on “Law, Language, and Identity: Educating Immigrant Children in the United States.”
