An engaging, case-based approach to the most up-to-date legal topics gives educators a basic understanding of the legal aspects of their work.
This text introduces K-12 educators to a body of school law that will help them to conduct themselves in a legally defensible manner. A balance of case law, statutory law, constitutional provisions, and analytical commentary, this vital book covers a wide range of topics including: sources of law under which educators operate; legal restraints to state action in K-12 education; legal rights and restrictions applicable to students and teachers; law pertaining to persons with disabilities; and liability for damages as a result of official action or inaction. In addition, broad legal concepts such as due process, equal protection, freedom of expression, the wall separating church and state, and reasonable search are analyzed to assist professional educators in gaining a better understanding of the legal landscape in which they operate. The entire text is written in a clear, engaging style appropriate for those who do not have extensive legal backgrounds.

With an emphasis on the case method, this clear and engaging school law text presents select court cases and their legal consequences in a real world context, assisting K-12 educators in making the essential connection between more abstract general principles of law and their operational application in schools.
