McLane Middleton attorney Susan E. Schorr will be presenting at the TABS/NAIS Global Symposium on April 16, 2018 in New Orleans.
Susan’s presentation, “Things You May Not Have Thought of When Evaluating Host Families,” will address what happens when the values of international parents clash with your school or organization’s mission, especially as it focuses on tolerance and respect for cultural differences. Whether attendees are an independent school sponsoring its own exchange students or an organization relied upon by schools to properly vet host families, prospective students and families may express placement preferences based on religious, sexual orientation, or other characteristics of host families. This presentation will highlight the laws and regulations that should guide application and placement decisions, and recommend essential organizational policies.
