Landmark Court Cases Affecting School Governance. Volume II. Resource Guide.
Drake, Jackson M.
During the late sixties and early seventies, school-related court decisions increased. The purpose of this publication is to present significant information for school board members and other interested people concerning selected landmark decisions in which the United States Supreme Court has rendered opinions on school issues. Many of these cases have established legal principles which may serve as guidelines for other potential litigation. For each case, the publication presents the citation, the facts of the case, the holding, and the basis for the decision. The cases selected concern segregation, aid to nonpublic schools, students' rights, corporal punishment, separation of church and state, liability, educational malpractice, bilingual education, equal educational opportunities, teachers' rights, school salaries, emotionally handicapped children's rights, maternity leave policies, and reverse discrimination.
