Legal Issues for Industrial Educators.
Gathercoal, Forrest; Stern, Sam
This book is designed to help industrial educators develop a basis for making decisions based on sound legal and ethical considerations--decisions related to students, colleagues, equipment, and money. The issues also concern administrators, advisory-committee members, risk managers, insurance representatives, and attorneys who work with educational programs. The book is also appropriate as a text for preservice and inservice teacher education. Each chapter in the book represents a critical legal issue from the industrial educator's perspective. The issues are safety and liability, product and service liability, cooperative work experience, insurance, writing student recommendations, eliminating sex stereotyping, disadvantaged students, handicapped students, school rules and student searches, due process and the rights of teachers, and ethics. Each chapter alerts industrial educators to relevant legal background and provides guidelines for decision making related to each issue. Chapters include case citations, references, and resources for those interested in additional information and materials. (YLB)
