After a hiatus of several months, I am pleased to announce CASTLE's re-launch of At the Schoolhouse Gate, a group blog dedicated to legal and policy issues in K-12 schools. We have several new contributors. Recent posts have addressed states' teacher discipline databases, cyberbullying, students' rights to post pictures taken in class, and a boy's right to wear a dress to prom.

I hope that you will join us. We welcome all new readers, commenters, and contributors.
