Unlike casebooks that zero in on the first amendment or bureaucratic aspects of education law Education Law: Equality, Fairness, and Reform stays focused on equality and civil rights issues. Individual chapters on each area of inequality explore race, poverty, gender, disability, homelessness, and language status. A structured approach to the complex first amendment divides it into three different chapters addressing, in order, freedom of expression and thought, religion in schools, and the intersection of religion and freedom of expression with school curriculum. Chapters relating to current educational reform and problems are included. Narrative introductions to every chapter, major section, and case synthesize and foreshadow the material to improve student comprehension and retention. Efficient presentation of carefully-edited cases and secondary sources permit comprehensive inclusion of case law and issues. Student-friendly questions and notes follow each case. Hypothetical are based problems that require synthesis of law, factual application, fact gathering, professional judgment, and practical problem-solving skills. These problems can be modified for group exercises, class discussion, or writing assignments. Education Law: Equality, Fairness, and Reform situates case law in the broader education world by including edited versions of federal policy guidance, seminal law review articles, social science studies, and organization reports.
