Law and Public Education: Cases and Materials. Contemporary Legal Education Series.
Goldstein, Stephen R.
This book is intended to serve as a general introduction to the broad area of educational law for students without previous exposure to the subject or as a tool for more advanced students seeking to focus on a particular area of the law as it applies to public education. Although its emphasis is primarily legal, the book also contains historical, pedagogical, economic, and other material necessary for full understanding and analysis of the subject matter. Cases and other materials have been included in unusually full versions in order to avoid the loss of important complexities, ambiguities, and nuances of meaning. Major topics of discussion include: the history and background of American public education; universal and compulsory education; curriculum determination; the testing, grouping, and grading of students; school control of general student conduct and status; the constitutional problems of control of expression in school; sanctions for breaches of rules; enforcing student conduct and status rules; racial segregation in the public schools; financing bilingual education and special education; school governance; and alternatives to public education. A separate alphabetical index to all cases referred to throughout the book is included. (Author/JG)
