School Officials and the Courts: Update 1979. ERS Monograph.
Delon, Floyd G.
This book is the third in a biennial series of school law monographs that was initiated in 1975 by Educational Research Service. These monographs present reviews of 100 recent state and federal court decisions, rendered since 1977, that have particular significance for those who determine educational policy and administer the public schools. Included are case reviews pertaining to each of nine areas: school boards and board members, finance contracts, collective bargaining, administrators, teachers, pupils, religion, and torts. Each review follows a uniform format: (1) the question or questions considered by the court, (2) a summary of the facts, (3) the court's decision, and (4) the author's commentary, including the rationale for the ruling. Because constitutional questions, especially those focusing on the First and Fourteenth Amendments, are involved in many of the cases reported, a brief discussion of the courts' approach to these questions is presented in the first section.
