Beckham, Joseph C.
This monograph is the 13th in a series 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 court reports in the period from July 1, 1990, to June 30, 1991. 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) teachers and other district employees; (5) pupils; (6) religion; and (7) torts and related statutory liability. Appended are reference notes, legal citations for each section, and a glossary of selected legal terms. (MLF)
