Featuring civil and criminal cases selected from hundreds of jurisdictions and newly updated to reflect the latest legal trends and precedents, the text reviews key laws and relevant court decisions.The case method offers ample opportunity for class discussion to discover and expose the underlying rules and reasoning, and the text actively encourages readers to relate factual situations to the law while anticipating similar experiences they may have as practicing teachers and administrators. Written in an engaging and accessible style, "American Public School Law, Seventh Edition", explains even complex points of law clearly and effectively for non-lawyers, and the authors maintain a diligent focus on the unique needs of professional educators preparing for successful careers in administration.

School Law: Cases and Concepts is written for educators and others who have little background in school law. It focuses on an understanding of legal rationale and principles that inform practice. Clearly and interestingly written, this book offers its readers the optimal balance of case law, statutes, regulations, and commentary, thereby providing first-hand knowledge of the law and useful guidance in understanding the meaning and application of the law in schools. This approach enables educators to operate in a legally defensible and educationally sound manner. In addition to providing historical perspective, this new edition examines policies and litigation pertaining to church and state issues, legal rights and restrictions applicable to students and teachers, desegregation, school finance, vouchers, and charter schools, developments in disabilities law, and harassment of students.

For graduate-level courses in Educational Law. Here is comprehensive, yet accessible coverage of the laws that most often affect policies and procedures within educational institutions. Because for most students, this text will be their first exposure to the study of law, the author has deliberately written in a conversational, student-friendly tone and taken a practical, case-study approach. Discussion of key legal issues is liberally highlighted by examples of landmark cases and current "headline making" court decisions. The intent is to encourage future educational administrators to practice "preventive law" while providing an explanation of the relationship between education and America's legal system that will enable them to recognize legal issues--and potential legal challenges--when they occur.
