School teachers and administrators may be the largest single group of rule enforcers in American society. Operating under legislative statutes, court cases, board policies, program regulations, and so on, there appears to be no end to that part of their professional tasks that calls for them to be on-the-spot enforcers in an adult to child relationship. Using constitutionality of operations within a school as its central focal point, the book takes both the broader and the narrower aspects of the law and combines them to provide an extended understanding of the realities in which professionals must perform as employees in elementary and secondary schools.
Organized into twelve broad topic areas, the handbook covers all key aspects of the law as it applies from administering personnel to religion in the schools. Appropriate court cases are cited throughout. This professional guide will be useful for teachers with an interest in school law, for graduate students preparing for a career in school administration, and for administrators in need of a precise, but succinct treatment of the law and schools.

?The authors use language easily understood by persons not trained in the legal profession. Broad topics are easily identified in the index and chapter headings, but subtopics or very specific issues are often blended together within or between paragraphs.?-The School Administrator
