Education, Social Science, and the Judicial Process. Policy Analysis and Education Series.
Rist, Ray C., Ed.; Anson, Ronald J., Ed.
As courts at the local, state, and federal levels take an increasingly large role in formulating educational policy, serious questions arise about the use of social science data in judicial decision-making. The seven papers in this book were first presented at a symposium focusing on an exploration of the manner in which the definitions of educational problems, the form and content of social science data brought to bear on an understanding of these problems, and the resultant policy decisions have been influenced by the new role of the courts. The papers in this collection, by both social scientists and jurists, examine various aspects of the present judicial approach to educational problem-solving and policy-making. (Author/MLF)
