Description

Written for upper-level and graduate courses in School Law.

Providing an all-inclusive treatment of the current status and evolution of the law governing public schools, this is the most comprehensive and well-documented school law text available. 

Public School Law: Teachers’ and Students’ Rights, Seventh Edition, addresses legal principles applicable to practitioners in a succinct but comprehensive manner. It uniquely blends a detailed treatment of landmark cases with a thorough discussion of the legal context, trends, and generalizations to guide all school personnel in their daily activities. Information in this text will help alleviate concerns voiced by educators who either do not know the legal concepts that govern schools or feel that the scales of justice have been tipped against them. Primarily written for school administrators and teachers to learn the most important points of the cases and how the cases will impact their practices, this new edition covers a wider range of legal topics, takes a much more in-depth approach to discussing the cases presented, and cites many more current cases that are relevant to practitioners than any other school law textbook in comparison.
