This clearly written text, which is adapted from its parent volume, Education Law, 4e, provides a concise introduction to topics in education law that are most relevant to teachers. The greater the likelihood of litigation or error in a particular area of professional practice the more extensive the discussion. Topics concerning teacher relationships with their students include: student rights, discipline, negligence, discrimination, and special education. Topics concerning teacher relationships with their employers include: teacher rights, hiring and firing, contracts, unions, collective bargaining, and tenure.
