The Yearbook of School Law 1975.
Piele, Philip K., Ed.
This book consists of seven chapters, each focusing on a different major area of school law. Each article offers a comprehensive summary and analysis of all state supreme court and federal court decisions as well as other significant court decisions relevant to one particular school law topic. The cases discussed are generally limited to those decided during 1974 and reported in the General Digest on or before March 1, 1975, though some 1973 cases that were not treated in the 1974 yearbook are included as well. In addition, the 1975 United States Supreme Court decisions in Wood v. Strickland and Goss v. Lopez are also considered. The individual chapters include: "Governance," by K. D. Moran; "Finance," by Richard A. Rossmiller and Virginia Davis Nordin; "Property," by Phillip K. Piele and James R. Forsberg; "Tort Liability," by H.C. Hudgins, Jr.; "Pupils," by Eldon D. Wedlock, Jr.; "Employees," by J.Everette DeVaughn; and "Higher Education," by D. Parker Young. In addition to an extensive topical index, there is also a comprehensive table of cases that lists alphabetically all of the cases examined in any of the articles. Selected cases that are treated in more than one article have been cross-referenced in the first footnote of each chapter in which the case is cited. (Author/JG)
