An Educator's Legal Guide to Stress-Free Discipline and School Safety.
Mazin, Lawrence; Hestand, John; Koester, Ruth
This guide presents practical steps to improve the school environment and to minimize the legal liability of educators. It provides strategies and techniques for discipline and safety, documentation, dealing with harassment, gang activities, physical violence, off-campus problems affecting school environment, issues concerning special education students, life away from school, and the giving of testimony in court. Although the guide is intended to create a safer school environment, it is not meant to take the place of specific legal advice. Three appendixes cover definitions and explanations of the legal system and constitutional rights, the giving of testimony in court and dealing with attorneys, and the receiving and giving of gifts and money to and from students. (Contains 38 references.) (DFR)
