Toward Universal Legal Literacy in American Schools
Militello, Matthew; Schimmel, David
Action in Teacher Education, v30 n2 p98-106 Sum 2008
This article examines how preservice and in-service teachers can be prepared to understand and implement school law. First, we report on research findings about what teachers know, do not know, and want to know about education law and where they get their information. Second, we identify the current norms, practices, and implications of preservice and in-service teacher education concerning school law. Finally, we offer alternative approaches to achieve universal legal literacy and its beneficial implications for teachers.
