ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
The eleven publications reviewed in this annotated bibliography discuss litigation and legal issues in education, such as administrator discretion in student discipline, the constitutional rights of students and teachers, defamation of character, and the school board's authority to transfer personnel. The literature also examines the issue of proving good faith, the establishment of a legal identity for principals, the necessity for following due process, the limits to an administrator's immunity from liability, and the legal aspects of managing a school's fiscal and physical resources. The authors stress that a thorough knowledge of the legal responsibilities in all areas of school operation is necessary to effective administration. (WD)
