The Courts as Educational Policymakers and Their Impact on Federal Programs.
This monograph examines recent legal developments in education and their impact on federal policy as well as ways in which the legislative and executive branches can facilitate rather than impede state compliance with court mandates. While organizing the discussion under the broad headings of "Equal Educational Opportunity,""Protection of Individual Rights of Students and Teachers," and "Collective Bargaining," the monograph deals with a wide range of topics including school finance reform, public aid to parochial schools, exclusion of the handicapped from public education, race and sex discrimination, equal educational opportunity for pupils with varying needs, procedural due process for students and teachers, legal liability of school officials, and limitations of the judicial process.
