School Law in Changing Times.
McGhehey, M. A., Ed.
This twenty-one chapter book deals with important, timely topics in school law. Topics include home instruction in place of public school attendance; judicial review of labor arbitration awards; procedures for nonrenewal of nontenured teachers that avoid constitutional problems; discipline by grade reduction and grade denial based on attendance; emerging and reemerging issues in church-state relations; and evolution and creationism. Also covered are school board censorship of library books and curriculum materials; the comparable worth concept for narrowing the earnings gap between men and women; resegregation and black English; judicial, legislative, and administrative trends concerning bilingual education; and law-related education. The book looks at the legal aspects of reduction in force; the debate over which areas are regulated by Title IX, especially the questions of athletics and employment; collective negotiation and the First Amendment; cases pending before the Supreme Court; and copyright laws affecting education. Final chapters deal with developments in fiscal equalization of state school support programs; an update of the burden of proof issue in applying the First and Fourteenth Amendments; discipline under the Education for All Handicapped Act; and the case against tuition tax credits.
