This comprehensive casebook presents thorough coverage of a complex and dynamic subject--educational law and policy in the elementary and secondary school setting. With an emphasis on the interplay between law and policy, legal decisions, and educational practice, the book's interdisciplinary approach provides a wide range of perspectives on the most pressing issues in the field. Cases, legislation, and articles, all of which are accompanied by notes and discussion questions, clarify the issues and bring them to life. The book draws upon a range of social science sources as well as conventional legal materials, offering analyses that provide insights into the political and policy contexts of legal issues, and helping readers make sense of legal decisions. The abundant notes and references also make the book a useful reference work for lawyers or school administrators working in the field.

Educational policy controversies in the United States invariably implicate legal issues. Policy debates about testing and school choice, for example, cannot be disentangled from legal rights and mandates. The same is true for issues such as funding, campus safety, speech and religion rights, as well as the teaching of immigrant students. Written for a general audience, this new twelvechapter book explores these compelling educational policy issues through that legal lens, building an understanding of both law and policy. The book's editors are Kevin Welner, associate professor of educational policy at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Wendy Chi, a doctoral candidate at Boulder. Both Welner and Chi are lawyers as well as educational scholars.

The book's 14 chapters and 800 pages cover all of the traditional topics, including student rights, special education, school safety, bullying, search and seizure, liability and teachers rights. The first edition establishes a foundation for understanding education law in a framework that results in a more confident approach for resolving policy disputes that frequently arise between local educators and state officials as well as between campus officials and parents.

Educational Law provides a comprehensive survey of the legal problems and issues that confront school administrators and policymakers. If there is a greater likelihood of litigation or error in a particular area of professional practice, the discussion is more extensive. The book is organized in accordance with the author's belief that students need to read cases to understand the subtlety and richness of the law, but for legal neophytes, cases without discussion and interpretation are often difficult to comprehend. Thus the text both explains the important concepts and principles of education law and presents court decisions to illuminate them. By employing this structure, the book combines the strengths of the traditional casebook and those of the legal treatise. It also discusses the implications of the law for educational policy and practice. Key features include the following: *Presentation--To aid comprehension, technical legal terms are carefully explained when first introduced and discussions of complex topics move logically from overview to elaboration of important details to summary of key topics and principles. *Cases--By integrating carefully edited cases into the analysis of legal issues, the book exposes students with little or no background in law to the subtlety and richness of legal thinking. *New Material--The third edition incorporates extensive treatment of new cases and legislation of the last five years. Topics that have been added or significantly expanded include: the No Child Left Behind Act, students rights--especially in the areas of free speech and search and seizure, vouchers and government assistance to private and religious schools, employment discrimination, racial and sexual harassment of students and school employees, affirmative action and voluntary school integration, equity and adequacy in school finance, issues relating to use of the Internet, and the law relating to special student populations. The table of cases contains about 250 more entries than in the second edition.

Almost every significant educational policy issue in the United States implicates legal issues. Policy debates about testing and school choice, for example, cannot be disentangled from legal rights and mandates. The same is true for issues of funding, campus safety, special education, and English language learners. Yet no book aimed at a general audience (as opposed to an audience of lawyers or law students) presents these current policy issues from a legal perspective. The proposed book - which will consist of approximately 12 chapters, each approximately 20 pages long - will explore compelling educational policy issues through that legal lens. The chapters will build an understanding of both law and policy. The chapters will be written by a group of authors enrolled in a doctoral seminar at CU-Boulder's School of Education. The book's editors are Kevin Welner, associate professor of educational policy at CU-Boulder, and Wendy Chi, a current doctoral student at CU-Boulder. Both hold JD degrees (Welner: 1988, UCLA Law; Chi: 2003, University of Michigan Law). The students will include approximately twelve Ph.D. students and six MA students, all working under the supervision and clos an external editor for each chapter. This will help to add rigor and credibility, and it will also help to get the word out. The intended audience includes the usual audience for educational policy books, as well as two more specific audiences: educational law students and scholars, and school & society (teacher-education) students.

Legal Issues in Special Education provides teachers and school administrators with a clearly written, well-organized, and understandable guide from the perspective of the practitioner without formal legal training. Even though over 50 percent of students with disabilities are now educated in general education classes, most teachers are not required to complete coursework in special education law and can unwittingly expose themselves and their schools to liability for violating the rights of students with disabilities. This practitioner’s guide explicitly addresses the major issues and legal complexities educators inevitably face when dealing with special education legal and policy issues. Using case-based learning to synthesize important legal concepts and principles from leading special education legal cases, this text guides educators, administrators, and parents alike toward a thorough understanding of, and the ability to navigate, many of the current and pressing legal concerns in special education.
