State and Federal Laws Relating to Nonpublic Schools.
Jellison, Helen M., Comp.
The primary purpose of this study is to present a state-by-state compilation of constitutional and statutory provisions that affect nonpublic elementary and secondary schools and the children who attend these schools. For this study, each state was asked to provide copies of its constitution, education code, and relevant legislation enacted in the most recent legislative sessions. The completed compilations were submitted to the states' departments of education for their review and comment. In addition to the compilation of state provisions, this report contains five introductory chapters. The first three briefly describe the current status of nonpublic schools in this country, summarize the duties of the states in regulating nonpublic schools, and describe the effects of federal laws on state responsibilities to nonpublic schools and school children, including a brief summary of relevant Supreme Court decisions. In the final two chapters, the constitutional and statutory provisions included in the state-by-state compilation are analyzed and discussed. The goal of this report is to provide a general reference for study and comparison of current state laws that affect nonpublic schools and school children. It is not intended as an authoritative legal source of reference. (Author)
