School Administrators and the Courts: A Review of Recent Decisions. ERS Monograph. Series, No. 3. ERIC/CEM State-of-the-Knowledge Series, No. 30.
Hudgins, H. C., Jr.
This monograph is a review of selected judicial decisions reported by state and federal courts during the past two years and related directly to the administration of elementary or secondary schools. The decisions were identified through a standard search of legal resources at the Temple University Law Library; each decision was read in its entirety as reported in the National Reporter System. Most of the 1973 and 1974 major school law decisions affecting administrators are included in this report. Treated in addition are two significant decisions rendered by the Supreme Court of the United States early in 1975. The 65 decisions in this publication are arranged under six headings: administrators, teachers, pupils, torts, religion, and contracts. The case reviews follow a consistent format: (1) the question to be resolved; (2) a brief summary of the facts; (3) the court's holding; and (4) the author's commentary, which is intended to explain the rationale of the decision as well as its general application to school administration.
