Do teachers have a right to dress as they wish?

Can Social Studies Teachers be prohibited from discussing controversial issues?

When can copyrighted works be copied without permission?

 

If you’ve ever pondered these or other questions of law, you need to know the right answers! In School Law: What Every Educator Should Know, A User-Friendly Guide, David Schimmel, Louis Fischer, and Leslie Stellman demystify educational law one question at a time and provide clarity to hundreds of topics that affect teachers today—NCLB, Vouchers, School Choice, Discipline, Academic Freedom, Liability for Student Injuries, Due Process, Search and Seizure, Dress and Grooming, to Harassment and Child Abuse—encompassing law established by state and federal statutes, constitutions, and court decisions. The authors offer friendly translations of legal jargon into everyday English, empowering educators to take the law constructively into their own hands and use it as a source of guidance and protection to improve their schools and classrooms.

 

School Law: What Every Educator Should Know, A User-Friendly Guide is a powerful reference every educator can use and is a perfect resource for seminars and courses in Education Foundations, Introduction to Educational Psychology, School Counseling, Field Experience, Student Teaching Practicum, and Classroom Management, where knowledge of core legal concepts is important.

 

Make the law work for you…

“With its question/answer format, [this] book provides a general overview of how the legal system applies to the practice of education, considering many questions one might not think to ask.”        

—Meghan M. Reilly, Andover High School, Andover, MA

 

 “There is an excellent balance of legal citations in contrast with specific examples that almost every instructor can relate to in their experience as a classroom teacher.”

—Thomas J. Little Jr., Kokomo-Center Schools, Kokomo, IN

Book News Annotation:

This guide to school laws is designed for educators who need a legal reference for such topics as dress codes, liability for student injuries, discipline, harassment, child abuse, search and seizure, due process and the standards set by the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) program. Schimmel (education, U. of Massachusetts, Amherst), Fischer (education, U. of Massachusetts, Amherst) and Stellman (education law, Johns Hopkins U., Morgan State U. and U. of Baltimore) use everyday English to describe common legal terms and concepts and provide appendices with selected readings from federal law and the Constitution that directly affects teachers. A section is also devoted to teacher contracts, tenure and collective bargaining. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
