Teachers and the law
A non-technical, non-intimidating look at legislation and cases that apply to the experience and daily life of teachers and students in schools. Clearly written and useful to both teachers and school administrators, this text focuses on legal issues reflecting national trends most important to educators today. The authors designed the text to help school professionals avoid unnecessary litigation by educating them about their legal rights and responsibilities and how and why the courts decided the way they did. This up-to-date presentation is technically accurate yet presented in ordinary language that non-lawyers can understand. Guiding legal principles are developed by examining actual current cases, and the question-and-answer format enables students to contextualize legal issues within the school environment.
