The only text that provides a question and answer format which addresses every aspect of school law from a teacher's perspective. Clearly written, this text focuses on legal issues reflecting current trends and decisions that are important to educators in the 21'st century. The authors designed the text for school professionals seeking an easy to use reference on every important area of school law, including student and employee rights, the impact of the No Child Left Behind Act on those rights, and how to understand their legal rights and responsibilities. This up-to-date presentation provides insights into laws governing education as well as court decisions from all 50 states and the federal courts. Nonetheless, it is written for non-lawyers, with an easy-to-follow question-and-answer format that enables students to apply legal principles and laws to their school environment. Guiding legal principles are presented in such a way that educators can easily understand and follow today's trends in the law governing education.
