This market-leading text for graduate-level courses in educational law is a combined textbook/casebook that provides a comprehensive view of the law that governs the public school system of America. The case method approach allows instructors to involve discussion to discover and expose the reasoning of the law. This helps students relate factual situations to the law while recognizing similar experiences they may have as practicing teachers and administrators.
