Summary

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. #xA0; This text introduces K-12 educators to a body of school law that will help them to conduct themselves in a legally defensible manner.#xA0; 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.#xA0;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.#xA0;The entire text is written in a clear, engaging style appropriate for those who do not have extensive legal backgrounds.
