Overview

School safety today, the legal rights of English Language Learners, the impact of recent U.S. Supreme Court and federal district appeals courts on education, the role of the social media in education today. These are some of the hot topics explored in David L. Strader’s widely popular Law and Ethics in Educational Leadership, 2/e. The book’s user-friendly, coherent approach gives leadership candidates the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need to become successful PK-12 educational leaders through a real-world, problem based approach to the study of legal issues, how changes in law and society impact decisions, and how to apply ethical frameworks to future decision-making. Throughout the book, Professor Strader encourages candidates to analyze, evaluate, and synthesize legal knowledge and ethical framework and then present their own views in a logical, coherent manner.
