Education Law Cases, 2001-2002.
National School Boards Association, Alexandria, VA. Council of School Attorneys.
This reference work is a supplement to the "Desk Reference on Significant Supreme Court Cases Affecting Public Education." It compiles summaries of selected education law cases from August 2001 through July 2002 and is intended as an overview of cases important to practitioners of school law. The text opens with a topical table of cases grouped by court decisions. For example, rulings on employment are grouped by Supreme Court decisions, circuit court opinions, federal district court opinions, state supreme court opinions, and state lower court opinions. Following the topical overview are chapters devoted to the following areas: employment cases; discrimination cases; school property, finance, and reform cases; technology cases; students' rights, safety, and discipline cases; liability cases; disabilities and special-education cases; religion cases; athletics cases; and governance cases. Each chapter provides the names of the litigants, the court number, a URL listing where the case can be found on the Internet, a synopsis of each case's issue, the facts surrounding the case, and the court's holding. A special table of Supreme Court cases that affect public education, though they may not have directly involved schools, as well as an alphabetical table of cases, are included. (RJM)
