Surviving As a Teacher: The Legal Dimension.
This book was designed to serve as a legal resource for secondary and elementary school teachers and prospective teachers. Specifically, the book helps teachers become aware of their legal rights and responsibilities in order to avoid violating others' constitutional and statutorial rights in the classroom, and to assert their personal and professional employment rights. Chapters address the following topics: from classroom to courtroom, employment issues, freedom of expression, student issues, torts and liability, collective bargaining, and the teacher's role in the attorney-client relationship. Each chapter contains answers to frequently asked questions and presents examples of pertinent cases. A glossary and index are included. Appendices contain amendments to the U.S. Constitution, a table of cases, and list of states in the Federal Judicial Circuit Courts of Appeals. (LMI)
