Foundation Press/Thomson/West, 2006 - Law - 1157 pages
The Law of Public Education uses 145 carefully selected cases and notes from 2,300 additional cases to illustrate the major principles and issues of contemporary education law. This textbook-casebook provides substantive analysis of topics such as abolition of positions, academic freedom, church-state education relations, discrimination, financing schools, collective bargaining, sexual harassment, affirmative action, workers compensation, and zoning. The fifth edition incorporates important recent developments into the conceptual framework, including a new chapter on the rights of students with disabilities. In addition, citations now include references to West's Education Law Reporter, making it easier for instructors and students to locate cases.
