Palestini, Robert H. and Karen F. Palestini.
Rowman & Littlefield Education
Written for K-12 teachers with little knowledge of school law, this volume introduces the basic legal issues that the authors (one of St. Joseph's U. and the other a partner in the Reed, Smith, Shaw, and McClay law firm) feel public and nonpublic school teachers need to have at least rudimentary knowledge of in order to carry out their professional duties. Following an introduction to basic legal concepts, chapters discuss the extent of state and school system authorities as they relate to school policy disputes, myriad legal issues related to the day-to-day lives of students and teachers; historical legal perspectives on school desegregation and the adequacy of state school finance formulas. The text takes a case brief approach to the material, providing summaries of important legal cases.
