School Officials and the Courts: Update 1981. ERS Monograph.
Delon, Floyd G.
Summaries and discussions of court decisions from 1979 to the present in this monograph, the fourth in a series, are designed to keep school administrators, board members, and others informed of current judicial decisions pertaining to elementary and secondary education. Because constitutional questions, especially those focusing on the First and Fourteenth Amendments, are involved in many of the cases reported, a brief discussion of the courts' approach to these questions is presented in the first section. Cases of special concern to school officials are grouped according to the following issues and topics: school boards and board members, finance, religion, collective bargaining, administrators, teachers, pupils, and torts. The cases are discussed under descriptive headings within each chapter and the case citations are listed at the end of the volume. A glossary of legal terms is provided. (Author/MLF)
