Imber, Michael; van Geel, Tyll
This second edition of this reference guide provides a survey of some of the major legal problems that confront policymakers and school administrators. It contains landmark cases and other cases that best illustrate major principles of education law, along with summaries, discussions, and analyses of the cases. Edited cases are integrated into analysis of legal issues to make the text more understandable for those not in the legal profession.
