Beckham, Joseph C.
This monograph is designed primarily to provide a broad scope treatment of case law involving public school issues. The cases included were selected from judicial decisions found in federal and regional reporters in the period from June 30, 1988, to June 30, 1989. 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. Chapter titles reflect the areas of school law issues covered in this edition: (1) school boards and board members; (2) administrators; (3) finance; (4) collective bargaining and contract management; (5) teachers and other district employees; (6) pupils; (7) religion; and (8) torts and related statutory liability. Appended are reference notes and a glossary of selected legal terms. (MLF)
