A Digest of Supreme Court Decisions Affecting Education.
Zirkel, Perry A., Ed.
This digest is a reference tool documenting 144 of the most important Supreme Court cases affecting education from 1859 to 1977, with emphasis on the decisions made during the past 25 years. Each case is written up in a three-part format that provides the facts and background of the case. The cases are organized into five sections: school district finance and organization; church-state relationships; student rights and responsibilities; employee rights and responsibilities; and race, language, and sex discrimination. Most cases listed affect students and staff in kindergarten through grade 12, but a few cases in higher education and juvenile law are listed. A glossary of legal terms is included. (Author/JM)
