This chapter summarizes and analyzes all state supreme court and federal court decisions as well as other significant court decisions involving school employees. The cases discussed are generally limited to those decided during 1974 and reported in the General Digest on or before March 1, 1975. Because of its unusual significance, the author also examines the 1975 United States Supreme Court decision Wood v. Strickland. In his discussion, the author attempts to integrate related cases and to illuminate any unifying legal principles that underlie the decisions relevant to each specific subtopic involving school employees. Separate sections of the article focus in turn on cases involving discrimination in employment, school board discretion to dismiss and discipline teachers, tenure and seniority, substantive due process, procedural due process rights, compensation, leaves of absence, teacher retirement, and collective bargaining and union activities.
