This succinct resource helps academic professionals understand how basic legal principles apply to educational questions
Written in a reader-friendly style that legal novices can easily understand, Legal Rights of School Leaders, Teachers, and Students details the principles underlying school law and provides essential guidelines for school personnel to follow in their everyday work. Descriptive scenarios of landmark cases and compelling visuals clarify concepts and help educators understand the context of legal principles as they apply to a range of school issues. While the coverage is comprehensive, the presentation is straightforward and non-technical with extensive footnotes that allow readers to delve further into topics.
This 8th Edition combines two highly successful books, Public School Law: Teachers’ and Students’ Rights and Legal Rights of Teachers and Students, with updated coverage of current and emerging legal issues, policies, and judicial decisions that affect classroom teachers. A new chapter on alternatives to traditional public schooling and expanded discussions of technology and social media use, rights of students with disabilities, and the importance of legal literacy keep readers informed and prepared to face today’s educational issues.
