Education Law Manual: An Advocate's Guide for New York State Parents and Professionals. Third Edition.
As a service to the community to protect the legal rights of students, this manual is designed to provide the legal information New York state parents and professionals need in order to become more effective educational advocates. It is not intended as a definitive legal resource, but rather as a guide for structuring a legally sound argument to ensure that every student's educational rights are honored. The manual gives an overview of student educational entitlements and provides suggestions to assist advocates and parents in speaking on behalf of their children. It explains New York state and federal legislation and the judicial cases interpreting laws that comprise educational entitlement. The manual also presents guidance on bringing the art of negotiation to advocacy efforts. Specific issues treated include the right to education and compulsory education, mandatory testing and graduation requirements, access to records, school discipline, special instructional services, services for students with disabilities, and disciplinary exclusions of handicapped children.
