Education Law, 5th Edition provides a comprehensive survey of the legal problems and issues that confront school administrators and policymakers today. This textbook is organized around the belief that students need to read court cases to understand the subtlety and richness of the law, but for legal neophytes, cases without discussion and interpretation are often too difficult to comprehend. Thus, the text balances an explanation of the important principles of education law, with actual court decisions to illuminate these concepts. The court decisions are carefully edited to highlight issues most relevant to administrators, and each chapter explores implications for policy and practice. New in the Fifth Edition: Additional content on bullying, student privacy, free speech rights, teacher evaluation, collective bargaining, and issues relating to Internet and technology. Revision of materials dealing with education policy and updating of references and case law throughout. A companion website with materials for students and instructors, including links to full cases, a glossary of key concepts, and discussion questions to help students further engage with the content.

Education Law: A Problem-Based Approach offers a problem based approach to teaching education law. The book covers both the standard education law topics and cutting-edge topics such as the Internet, electronic speech, discipline for off-campus behavior, cyber-bullying, strip searches, and various issues regarding NCLB and education reform. The book also provides a guided, hands-on approach that gives students an opportunity to go outside of the text and gather information about how certain aspects of education law work in "the real world" and in their own states. This innovative text starts with an introductory and foundational chapter and then proceeds to cover each topic through a problem-based approach. The text provides a problem and related statutory, regulatory, and court decisions that not only inform students of the relevant law but also provide impetus for students to focus their understanding on real and relevant problems. For example, the opening foundational chapter (which includes Brown, San Antonio, and Plyler, as well as information on the state of education and education reform), asks students to consider a law / litigation-oriented strategy for achieving improvement in the education system as we know it today. Similarly, part of a later chapter on liability offers extensive narrative and then poses a problem on a space-monkey playground game (kids hang upside down on the monkey bars and deliberately try to pass out as if floating in space). To facilitate students' ability to understand and answer the problem, the text offers cases that are decided both ways on analogous facts and negligence. The problems in Education Law: A Problem-Based Approach are all drawn to be current and immediately relevant. The case and statutory and regulatory materials support this approach by including the classic Supreme Court cases such as Brown v. Board of Education, Rowley, T.L.O., and the speech trilogy, along with the recent decisions by the Court such as Safford Unified Sch. Dist. v. Redding, Forest Grove Sch. Dist. v. T.A., and Horne v. Flores. Leading lower court cases are also provided along with various state and federal statutes and regulations. Topics covered in the book include: • Foundational principles (including sources of law, the hierarchy of laws involved, and how state and federal law interact); • School funding; • Employment issues; • Instruction and curricular issues, including academic freedom; • Attendance, assignment, and placement (including compulsory attendance issues and home-schooling issues); • School liability (including torts, Section 1983, Title IX, and online liability); • Privacy rights and right to know (includes FERPA); • Student discipline; • Student expression; • Search, seizure, and interrogation; • Religion; • Special education; and • No Child Left Behind.

Clear, well organized presentation of IDEA and other pertinent federal laws, together with well organized discussion of relevant cases, help educators understand and apply their knowledge in concrete situations. The emphasis of this practical book is on increasing understanding at a conceptual level rather than rote memorization of detailed provisions of the IDEA and other laws. By understanding the law, educators will be better equipped to work with future amendments of IDEA and with new laws that may be enacted by Congress. They will also have an increased ability to apply statutory provisions to specific situations. Part I – Constitutional Framework: provides important background in understanding the authority that Congress has to enact laws that impact on education in the United States and the authority that the courts have to interpret laws. Includes discussion of the judicial system, the key provisions of the United States Constitution, due process, equal protection, the statutes of certain regulations, and a brief overview and comparison of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Rehabilitation Act (RA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Part II – IDEA: covers background, basic language and coverage, duty to evaluate, FAPE, IEP, placement, related services, inclusions/least restrictive environment, private school, discipline, mediation, due process, and court proceedings. Sample forms are included to supplement discussion with concrete examples to aid understanding. Part III – RA and ADA: covers RA/ADA basics, such as who is an individual with a disability, what entities are covered, enforcement provisions, and application to schools, universities, and employers. Part IV – Other Legal Issues: covers No Child Left Behind, FERPA, tort liability, and high stakes testing issues. At the end of each part there is a very basic question and answer section to assist the student in focusing on major points in each part.
