School Officials and the Courts: Update 1982. ERS Monograph.
Beckham, Joseph C.
This monograph, the fifth in a series, contains summaries and discussion of selected state and federal court decisions handed down during the Supreme Court's 1981-82 term. The cases were selected on the basis of their relevance to contemporary problems in public school settings, their definitiveness as articulations of existing law, and their reliability as consistent guides to educational policy-making and practice. 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. (MLF)
