Item description for Education Law: An Essential Guide for Attorneys, Teachers, Administrators, Parents, and Students by Ralph M. Gerstein & Lois A. Gerstein...
The legal relationship between student and school is a fragile one. Educational institutions do many things that create multiple legal issues and therefore, almost every field of law effects them.
The rights of students are governed by constitutional provisions, and, in some cases by state statutes, giving school officials a difficult job to do. Contract law, tort law, constitutional law, civil rights law, sports law and disability law are all interwoven to form the basis of education law. For example, even the seemingly basic task of setting academic standards involves both contract law and the laws protecting individuals with disabilities. It can also include First Amendment issues since some professors have claimed that they have the First Amendment right to determine grades. However, even those who chose to home-school their children are not free from the complexities of educational law. Issues such as team sports, attendance and the rights of home-schooled students to attend public schools part-time are all part of state and federal laws and constitutional rights.
Education Law will prove to be your essential guide to creating standards for your school district and enforcing your legal rights in the classroom. You will be guided through the rights of teachers, parents and students while reading case studies of previous legal actions. The Gersteins analyze these legal issues from the points of view of both the students and school administrators, providing you a well-rounded explanation and understanding of how these laws are interpruted as they reach the courtroom.
Education Law will prove to be your road map through the complicated situations we find in today's classroom.
