The Yearbook of Education Law, 2001.
Russo, Charles J., Ed.
This yearbook presents legal precedents for a broad spectrum of education-related issues. Drawing on 25 experts' research in education and law, the book opens with legalities concerning school employees. It examines discrimination, constitutional rights, due process, dismissal, nonrenewal, demotion, and discipline; duty; involuntary leaves; contract disputes; tenure; and certification. Two of the sections look at pupils and include precedents on school attendance, substantive rights, sanctions for misconduct, and desegregation. A separate section is devoted to students with disabilities and includes regulations on procedural safeguards, dispute resolution, placement, remedies, state laws, and discrimination. Bargaining is covered in the next part, with precedents on labor organizations, unfair labor practices, dispute resolution, and wages. The following segment examines torts and legal action arising from negligence, educational malpractice, injuries, workers' compensation, and emotional distress. Sports has its own sections on torts, in addition to eligibility issues, program equality, and employment. Students in higher education are addressed in two lengthy sections that include intergovernmental relationships, federal issues, employees, tort and contract liability, admissions, tuition, and discipline. Two further chapters discuss federal and state legislation and education-related issues, which are followed by legal issues in international law with separate chapters on Australia, Canada, Europe, Great Britain, New Zealand, and South Africa. (Includes an index, a table of cases, and cases by jurisdiction.) (RJM)
