Delaware Medical Legal Partnership: Attorneys Collaborating with Clinical Teams – 844-292-1318 Delaware legal aid

Patients challenged with social determinants of health are more likely to incur higher health care costs due to their inability to adhere to prescribed medical recommendations and their inefficient use of health care resources. Some of these challenges can be resolved with legal intervention. The Medical-Legal Partnership (MLP) model has demonstrated positive impact on improving health outcomes by addressing civil legal needs of vulnerable populations. At Christiana Care Health System, a legal team from Community Legal Aid Society, Inc. (CLASI) is collaborating with clinical staff to determine and help resolve patients’ legal needs, which will improve their ability to manage all the determinants of their health. We are conducting an evaluation of the efficacy of the medical-legal collaboration on improved patient outcomes. Process measures describe the type of services needed by patients and how they are delivered by examining how many and types of referrals, hours spent on each referral, source of referral, patient demographics and legal outcome. Outcome measures assess whether the MLP improves patient outcomes in quality of life and perceived stress.

Susan Howard-Smola is a Senior Clinical Researcher at the Value Instistute at Christiana Care Health System. She has doctoral training in public health with an emphasis in program evaluation and qualitative methods and a law degree from the Delaware Law School at the Widener University with a Health Law Certificate. Her research is primarily in the area of population health, program evaluation and health policy.

Wilmington, DE (December 3, 2014) — The ACLU of Delaware, ACLU Racial Justice Program and Community Legal Aid Society, Inc. filed a complaint today with the Office of Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education arguing that Delaware’s charter school law and policies have a discriminatory impact on students of color and students with disabilities and have significantly contributed to the resegregation of Delaware’s public schools. Specifically, the complaint claims that the State of Delaware through the Department of Education and the Red Clay Consolidated School District, the two entities that authorize public charter schools in the state, are in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

“Every student in the State of Delaware deserves equal access to a high-quality education,” said Kathleen MacRae, executive director of the ACLU of Delaware. “But what has evolved since the passage of the Charter School Act of 1995 is state-sanctioned preferential treatment for families who are able to navigate the special requirements of charter school admissions.

“We hope that the Office of Civil Rights recognizes that any system of selection that has the effect of almost completely excluding children with disabilities from the ‘high-achieving’ charter schools is deeply disturbing and must constitute illegal discrimination,” says Dan Atkins, Legal Advocacy Director of the Disabilities Law Program of Community Legal Aid Society, Inc.

RACIALLY IDENTIFIABLE SCHOOLS
The complaint documents that over three-quarters of charter schools operating in Delaware are racially identifiable. High performing charter schools are almost entirely racially identifiable as White. Low income students and students with disabilities are disproportionately relegated to failing charter schools and charter schools that are racially identifiable as African American or Hispanic, none of which are high performing.

Another result of the proliferation of charter schools is increased segregation in traditional public schools located in districts where charter schools operate. In addition, when the impact of the Neighborhood Schools Act of 2000 is considered, inner city school children have no good alternatives—they may attend a hyper-segregated traditional public school or attend a hyper-segregated charter school. When charter schools admit a disproportionate number of higher-income White students with no disabilities, the traditional public schools are left with the difficult and costly task of educating the students most challenged by poverty or special education needs.

RECOMMENDATIONS
In order to remedy the current situation regarding Delaware public schools, the ACLU and CLASI urge:

•A moratorium on the authorization and opening of new charter schools until an effective desegregation plan has been implemented;
•Utilization of a random opt-out lottery for charter school admissions;
•Assurance that the cost of attending a public charter school is free and that parents are not required or pressured to purchase uniforms or raise money for the school;
•Capping class size in traditional public schools at the same level as charter schools and ensuring that total funding for traditional public schools is equal to that of charter schools;
•Providing additional funding to schools with a disproportionately high number of students of color, students with special needs and low-income students;
•A plan to ensure that students with disabilities are recruited and reasonably accommodated in all charter schools.
