Overview

This brief, easy-to-read text provides a concise introduction to those topics in education law that are of most immediate interest to classroom teachers. The greater the likelihood of litigation or error in a particular area of professional practice, the more extensive the discussion. Topics concerning teacher relationships with their students include: student rights, discipline, discrimination, special education, and negligence. Topics concerning teacher relationships with their employers include: hiring and firing, contracts, unions, collective bargaining, and tenure. Key features include the following:
Flexibility—Because it is brief and affordable, A Teacher's Guide to Education Law, Second Edition can be used in a variety of courses, such as Teachers and the Law, Social Foundations of Education, Student Teaching Seminars, or in block courses where legal literacy is one of several major topics.
Presentation—To aid comprehension, technical legal terms are carefully explained when first introduced and discussions of complex topics move logically from overview to elaboration of important details to summary of key topics and principles.
Up-to-Date—Approximately 50% of the text is either new or revised and almost half of the entries in the table of cases are new.
