BOOK EXCERPT:

The goal of this book is to provide comprehensive and practical knowledge of relevant legal issues that affect the administration of public schools. It will allow educators to effectively perform their duties within the boundaries of constitutional, statutory, and case law. It is also designed to be easy to understand for those with little or no legal background. Selected court cases address issues most relevant to education. It includes recent landmark court decisions in areas such as religion, student rights, student and faculty disabilities, and classroom harassment. School violence is discussed comprehensively. The book begins with an index of major legal issues related to relevant issues, allowing the reader to ascertain the legal sources of authority related to those particular topics. Educational leaders are provided with pertinent information to direct their day-to-day decisions. The primary focus is not on state law since this varies from state to state. Appendices include constitutional provisions, selected and annotated federal statutes, and an abbreviated glossary. It will enable educators to perform their legal duties and to meet the requirements of reasonableness as they move their organizations toward their goals. (Contains 279 references.) (RKJ)

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. With this seventh edition of Public School Law: Teachers’ and Students’ Rights, renowned authors Martha M. McCarthy, Nelda H. Cambron-McCabe, Suzanne E. Eckes, have proven once again that their mainstay for school law can’t be touched by the competition. In a masterful blend of detailed treatment of landmark cases with a thorough discussion of the legal context, trends, and generalizations to guide all school personnel in their daily activities, the book addresses legal principles applicable to practitioners in a succinct but comprehensive manner. Information in this text will help alleviate concerns voiced by educators who either do not know the legal concepts that govern schools or feel that the scales of justice have been tipped against them. Primarily written for school administrators and teachers to learn the most important points of the cases and how the cases will impact their practices, this new edition covers a wider range of legal topics, takes a much more in-depth approach to discussing the cases presented, and cites many more current cases that are relevant to practitioners than any other school law textbook in comparison. New to this edition, besides being thoroughly updated and revised throughout, are the most current new laws, policies, and judicial decisions; more than 400 new cases from previous editions, with all content as current and well-documented as of July, 2012; new information on cyber-bullying, sexting; legal controversies involving charter schools; and the Common Core State Standards Web sites with current data on a range of topics from voucher programs and home education to curriculum requirements; the latest on the American with Disabilities Act amendments of 2008, amendments to the regulations for Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, and the Lilly Ledbetter Act; race-conscious student assignment plans, and the use of seclusion and restraints with students with disabilities with new information regarding guidelines from the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education.; and the most current legal information regarding protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students; permissible religious activities in public schools; and student searches, including strip searches and cell phone searches. For law students, it is primarily written for teachers, school administrators, and other public school personnel taking a school law course at the graduate and master’s levels, there is not a greater, more comprehensive resource on the market today than Public School Law, Seventh Edition.
