Allan G. Osborne, Jr. is the retired principal of the Snug Harbor Community School in Quincy, Massachusetts, a nationally recognized Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. During his 34 years in public education, he served as a special education teacher, a director of special education, an assistant principal, and a principal. He has also served as an adjunct professor of special education and education law at several colleges, including Bridgewater State University and American International University.
Osborne earned an EdD in educational leadership from Boston College and an MEd in special education from Fitchburg State College (now Fitchburg State University) in Massachusetts. He received a BA in psychology from the University of Massachusetts.
Osborne has authored or coauthored numerous peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, monographs, and textbooks on legal issues in education, along with textbooks on other aspects of education. Although he writes and presents in several areas of educational law, he specializes in legal and policy issues in special education. He is the coauthor, with Charles J. Russo, of five texts published by Corwin, a SAGE company.
A past president of the Education Law Association (ELA), Osborne has been an attendee and presenter at most ELA conferences since 1991. He has also written a chapter now titled "Students With Disabilities" for the Yearbook of Education Law, published by ELA, since 1990. He is on the editorial advisory committee of West’s Education Law Reporter and is coeditor of the "Education Law Into Practice" section of that journal, which is sponsored by ELA. He is also on the editorial boards of several other education journals.
In recognition of his contributions to the field of education law, Osborne was presented with the McGhehey Award by ELA in 2008, the highest award given by the organization. He is also the recipient of the City of Quincy Human Rights Award, the Financial Executives Institute of Massachusetts Principals Award, the Junior Achievement of Massachusetts Principals Award, and several community service awards.Review:
"While school officials are vested with the authority to ensure an orderly school environment, they must conform to a complex array of legal and regulatory mandates extending entitlements to special education students. Whether discussing parental notification, the manifestation determination, the requirements for free appropriate education in alternative placements, or emergency removal of a dangerous student, this book provides the educator with a concise guide that combines a proactive approach to problem solving with a pragmatic approach for best practice in special education." (Joseph Beckham, Allan Tucker Professor of Educational Leadership 2008-10-22)
"Osborne and Russo provide practitioners with a practical, easy-to-follow guide for best practice in response to disciplinary transgressions for special education students. Their book is informative, well organized, and a ready resource for busy administrators who are trying to run safe, orderly schools." (Lois F. Berlin, Superintendent 2008-10-24)
"Disciplining students with disabilities is one of the more controversial and confusing aspects of special education law. Osborne and Russo′s book provides readable, practical guidelines detailing the full spectrum of discipline-related legal issues impacting students with special needs. School leaders will benefit greatly from the authors′ legal expertise and ability to deconstruct the myriad of legal topics into a comprehensible text." (Kevin P. Brady, Assistant Professor 2008-10-24)
"A compelling read. I found myself making notes in the margin to remind me to share excerpts with colleagues, both administrators and teachers. Discipline in special education can be a daunting issue for school administrators who are not familiar with the laws and regulations. This is a valuable overview of school law and how to apply it. One of the most useful books I have read as a building principal." (Laurie Emery, Principal 2008-12-01)
"Prepares administrators to help our most vulnerable children get the best education possible. A quick yet thorough resource for understanding and navigating the US legal system. This should be in every principal’s office." (Barb Keating, Principal 2008-12-01)
"Full of highly useful information that will particularly benefit school administrators. Educators out in the field have long needed a clear and concise explanation of this very complex area in special education." (Bill Morgan, Special Education Coordinator 2008-12-01)
