Legal Rights of Teachers and Studentsprovides an applied treatment of the law governing public schools in the key areas that concern teachers and students.

Written for the growing undergraduate and returning professional audience of teachers, this text addresses legal principles applicable to pre-service and in-service practitioners in a succinct, comprehensive manner. It addresses the central issues that concern school personnel in their daily activities: religious activity, instructional issues, student expression, students with disabilities, student discipline, teacher employment, Teachers' Substantive Rights, termination of employment, and tort liability. Information in this text will guide PRACTITIONERS and help alleviate concerns voiced by new educators who don't know the legal concepts that govern schools.

The second edition has been thoroughly updated with the latest cases and provides coverage of such timely topics as English Language Learners, Bullying, Sexual Harassment, vouchers, digital copyright, and more.
