Legal Rights and Responsibilities of Indiana Teachers. Fourth Edition.
Swalls, Fred; And Others
Intended as a handbook for school administrators and teachers and as a textbook for graduate and undergraduate level education courses, this book covers the current status of law affecting Indiana teachers as defined in statutes and interpreted by the courts. The first of nine chapters discusses the legal foundations of education in Indiana, including the state constitution, the roles of the legislature and the courts, and the state and local organization of education. Chapter 2 covers the teacher's authority as it relates to student rights, and chapter 3 focuses on liability for pupil injury. Contracts for teachers and administrators, teachers' salaries, and collective bargaining are the main issues in the fourth chapter, the fifth looks at teacher tenure, and the sixth discusses teacher retirement. Chapter 7 considers the application of the law to student teachers. The eighth chapter analyzes the legal ramifications of special education. The final chapter concentrates on the effects of laws concerning family educational and privacy rights, sex discrimination, and age discrimination. Appendixes present three official teachers' contract forms, the 1975 Indiana teachers' minimum salary schedule, and the agreement concerning placement of student teachers by Indiana State University.
