Limits on the State and Federal Governments’ Authority to Regulate
School Districts – A Case Study
The U.S. Constitution confers only limited powers on the federal government. Part 1, Article 28-a of the N.H. Constitution in turn restricts the State’s authority to impose new unfunded mandates on school districts. This session will review how those constraints operate when the federal government regulates states by attaching strings to federal funds and the state downshifts to school districts the costs of compliance. The session will then apply those constitutional principles by considering
whether recent amendments to New Hampshire’s special education statute, raising the upper age limit to a student’s 22nd birthday without full state funding for the new costs, are a legally permissible means to achieve a laudable end.
Presented by Jerry Zelin
