Legal Briefs for School Administrators.
Strahan, Richard Dobbs
The legal briefs in this volume provide insights into operational problems for a practicing administrator. Fifteen briefs provide some general policy statements that appear to be sound practice for the areas covered. In addition, each section propounds questions that are commonly asked by school people. The author has attempted to attack each problem area with sufficient legal theory to provide a sound educational foundation as well as practical solutions. The briefs cover the legal aspects of (1) student and school records, (2) student discipline, (3) student injury, (4) contracts and collective negotiations, (5) board control of finance and facilities, and (6) the exercise of school board authority.
