Overview

Since 1986, school administrators, school board members, school attorneys, teachers, coaches, counselors, and university professors have relied upon this highly popular and standard reference source. Newly revised to include legislative and judicial developments to the year 2000, the Fifth Edition of The Educator's Guide to Texas School Law provides the most current, comprehensive source on Texas education law available. The authors have extensively updated all the chapters in this edition and have added much new information to help educators manage the challenges of the new century successfully.

Among the topics added to the Fifth Edition are employee drug testing, contract termination decisions issued by the certified hearing examiners, the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and legal issues involving the Internet. Readers will find an expanded review of federal disability law, with emphasis on new developments involving the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The legal liability discussion has been expanded to encompass the dramatic increase in court rulings on sexual abuse and harassment. The Fifth Edition also includes all relevant federal and state court rulings and the decisions of the Texas Commissioner of Education.
