Overview

In this concise, reader-friendly, applied resource, pre- and in-service educators get practical help for approaching the legal issues affecting their daily activities with students and teachers. With the goals of providing an awareness of rights and responsibilities, motivating educators to translate basic concepts into actual practice, and generating an interest in further study of the law, this book looks at the legality of the complex decisions educators must make every day in such areas as religion, instruction, student expression, disabilities, discipline, teacher employment, Teachers’ Substantive Rights, termination, and tort liability; plus such as English Language Learners, bullying, sexual harassment, vouchers, digital copyright, and more.

In this new edition the authors present up to date coverage through new sections addressing emerging issues of legal concern, more than 300 new illustrative cases, and coverage of at least 40 new or recently amended state and federal laws. Included is coverage of important legal concerns in the areas of:

  • Employee and student use of the Internet and social media.
  • State legislation and First Amendment challenges pertaining to student bullying.
  • Educators’ free expression rights following the Supreme Court’s ruling in Garcetti v. Ceballos.
  • Changes in public employees’ bargaining rights.
  • Charter schools and other alternatives to traditional public schools.
  • Efforts to provide government aid to private schools through tax credit programs and voucher plans.
  • Affirmative action in pupil assignment plans.
