Overview

Education Law provides a comprehensive survey of the legal problems and issues that confront school administrators and policy makers. The greater the likelihood of litigation or error in a particular area of professional practice, the more extensive the discussion. The book is organized in accordance with the authors' belief that students need to read cases to understand the subtlety and richness of the law - but that for legal neophytes, cases without discussion and interpretation are often difficult to comprehend. Thus the text both explains the important concepts of principles of education law and presents court decisions to illuminate them. By employing this structure, the book combines the strengths of the traditional casebook and those of the legal treatise. It also discusses the implications of the law for educational policy and practice.
