Beckham, Joseph C.
This handbook is the 16th in the series of monographs designed to summarize judicial decisions on elementary and secondary education. The cases included in the book were selected from judicial decisions found in federal and regional reporters for the period July 1, 1993, to June 30, 1994. The cases provide a general overview of school law issues for the practicing administrator, teacher, or school board member. The monograph is designed primarily to provide a broad treatment of case law involving public school issues. 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. Topics of discussion include the following: school boards and board members, administrators, finance, teachers and other district employees, pupils, special education, religion, and torts and related statutory liability. A glossary and reference notes are included. (LMI)
