Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
California School Law provides ‘one-stop shopping’ for individuals examining the laws that relate to the operation of schools. In my 38 years as an educator, including 30 in administration, I have never seen a book that covers such detailed, easy-to-read accountings of laws impacting the daily operation of schools. This book will provide an immediate and excellent resource and should be in the offices of all administrators.”—Larry Maw, Former Superintendent of the San Marcos Unified School District

"I would recommend this book to every educator and policymaker in public education. It is a great reference for immediate and comprehensive information on a variety of laws that govern California education."—Dr. Sonny H. Da Marto, Superintendent of the Turlock Unified School District

"Finally, this is the comprehensive, thoughtful, and lucid treatment of California educational law and policy we've been waiting for. The authors not only explain the complex world of California school law with a lawyer's precision, but they make this sometimes arcane topic both lively and compelling with rich examples and from a national perspective."—William S. Koski, Eric and Nancy Wright Professor of Clinical Education, Professor of Law, and Professor of Education (courtesy), Stanford University

"California School Law is a valuable addition to the literature on education law. No other book effectively and comprehensively covers education law in California, and the authors are well qualified to compile this information. This book will be a necessary resource for a wide range of people interested or involved in education in California."—Stephen Sugarman, Roger J. Traynor Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley

"I was surprised to find [California School Law] so readable . . . the way it explains on the origins of certain laws and their impact is very compelling."—Susan Wolking, Executive Director, Girard Foundation
