Desk Reference on Significant U.S. Supreme Court Cases Affecting Public Schools. Revised Edition.
Gregory, Gwendolyn H.
This booklet offers a summary of United States Supreme Court decisions handed down through the end of the Court's 1994-95 term. The synopses include only the rule of law of the case and the facts necessary to the decisions. In a few situations the synopsis also includes a legal theory. The reference contains virtually all cases in which a public school district was a party and in which a substantive decision was rendered. It also includes some cases in which a school district was not a party. The book is organized by the constitutional provisions and federal statutes upon which the U.S. Supreme Court has based its decisions affecting public schools. It includes cases related to the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights (Amendments 4, 8, 10, 11, and 14), Civil Rights statutes, and funding statutes. A table of cases, a table of constitutional provisions and federal statutes, and a descriptive word index are also provided. (LMI)
