Teachers' Legal Rights, Restraints and Liabilities. American School Law Series.
Bolmeier, Edward C.
This book presents and analyzes approximately 110 court decisions on a number of issues pertaining to the legal rights and responsibilities of teachers. The author discusses the significant legal principles involved in each case in an attempt to provide useful guidelines for teachers and school administrators. Except in the final chapter, the author limits his discussion to an objective appraisal of the legal aspects of the various cases and refrains from personal judgments on their propriety or social implications. The individual chapters focus on the following topics: the right of tenure, termination of tenure by dismissal, the right of leave of absence, the right of association, the right to teach certain controversial matters, rights outside the classroom, the right to strike, liability for pupil injuries, and conclusions and implications.
