Law and American Education: A Case Brief Approach

Law and American Education: A Case Brief Approach (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Both public and nonpublic school educators are aware that over the last several decades courts have played an increasingly significant role in defining school policy. Decisions in such areas as school desegregation, prayer, public school financing, student rights, collective bargaining, and other personnel issues attest to the extent and importance of judicial influence. It is necessary, therefore, that teachers and administrators have at least a rudimentary knowledge and understanding of school law and how it affects their day-to-day classroom activities. This book includes a sizable body of school law that educators should be familiar with so that they are able to conduct themselves in a legally acceptable manner. In today's environment, it is crucial that educators consider the legal implications of their decisions and conduct. This book provides introductory material for those educators interested in K-12 educational issues who have little or no knowledge of school law. An update to the original book published in 1999, this second edition covers additional topics such as sexual harassment, educational vouchers, drug testing, and students with disabilities.
