Schools and the Law.
Reutter, E. Edmund, Jr.
The basic areas of school law in the United States, from the governmental framework in which education functions to concerns about teachers, pupils, and school property, are covered in this book. Separate chapters describe the roles of governmental agencies at federal, state, and local levels and discuss regulation of what is taught as well as how, to whom, and by whom. Additional chapters focus on contemporary legal problems faced by schools: regulation of student conduct; liability for injury to students; management of school property; the legal aspects of providing transportation; the financing of education; the relationships between religion, education, and government in both public and private schools; and requirements for desegregation. Prepared as a layman's summary of the current state of the law, this document omits the footnotes and case citations typically found in legal analyses in favor of brevity and readability.
