Beckham, Joseph C.
This is the 12th in a series of monographs designed to summarize judicial decisions on elementary and secondary education issues. The cases included in this edition were selected from judicial decisions found in federal and regional reports in the period from June 30, 1989, to June 30, 1990. 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. The case summaries are organized according to the following general topics: (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. Reference notes are included, along with a glossary of selected legal terms. (MLF)
