Comparative School Law provides a succinct analysis of the developed systems of school law in ten countries and includes a chapter which reviews school law in the European Community. School law is strictly jurisdictional and the question is posed as to whether there is a trend towards an increase internationally in school law. In many countries educational problems have been controlled by statutory provisions with the courts playing an important role in framing judicial doctrine for the operation of school systems. This book tries to establish whether the development of school law has had parallels in various countries and whether important differences exist. School law is strictly national and often regional or local and each author has produced an informative study of the school systems in their individual countries based on the common themes of sources of school law, the legal structure of school systems, school administration, the duties and rights of parents, children and teachers, discipline and negligence or malpractice. In the concluding chapter the editors draw together the main points of this comparative study to present the current relationship between education and law.
