Eckes, Suzanne E.
Action in Teacher Education, v30 n2 p25-35 Sum 2008
The purpose of this article is to inform teachers, administrators, students, and university faculty about the most important legal topics to include in preservice teacher education programs. Surprisingly, only a few studies have attempted to identify the most important topics. This article reviews the relevant literature regarding school law within preservice teacher preparation programs and reports results from a textbook analysis that examined the typical topics included in school law courses. Furthermore, recommendations are discussed on the basis of this research regarding which legal topics to include in courses and professional development sessions. (Contains 1 table.)
