Much has changed in the area of school law since the first edition of The Educator’s Guide was published in 1986. This new ninth edition offers an authoritative source on all major dimensions of Texas school law through the 2017 legislative sessions. Intended for educators, school board members, interested attorneys, and taxpayers, the ninth edition explains what the law is and what the implications are for effective school operations. It is designed to help professional educators avoid expensive and time-consuming lawsuits by taking effective preventive action. It is an especially valuable resource for school law courses and staff development sessions. The ninth edition begins with a review of the legal structure of the Texas school system, incorporating recent innovative features such as charter schools and districts of innovation. Successive chapters address attendance, the instructional program, service to students with special needs, the rights of public school employees, the role of religion, student discipline, governmental transparency, privacy, parent rights, and the parameters of legal liability for schools and school personnel. The book includes discussion of major federal legislation, such as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Every Student Succeeds Act. On the state level, the book incorporates new laws pertaining to cyberbullying and inappropriate relationships between students and employees. Key points are illustrated through case law, and a complete index of case citations is included.

This volume presents policy statements as they have been formulated by standing and special committees of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) from 1940 to the present. Also included are a number of reports on special topics that have been approved by the AAUP for publication. The AAUP has been engaged in developing standards for sound academic practice and in working for the acceptance of these standards for more than 85 years. The policy documents offer guidance to all components of the academic community for the development of institutional policy or the resolution of concrete issues. Some documents are designed to be adapted as institutional policy. Third parties also use some of these statements to support their own policies. The policy statements and reports are grouped into these categories: (1) "Academic Freedom, Tenure, and Due Process"; (2) "Professional Ethics"; (3) "Research and Teaching"; (4) "Distance Education and Intellectual Property"; (5) "Discrimination"; (6) "College and University Government"; (7) "Collective Bargaining"; (8) "Student Rights and Freedoms"; (9) "College and University Accreditation"; (10) "Collateral Benefits"; and (11) "Constitution." Appendixes contain the AAUP's 1915 "Declaration of Principles" and three other documents related to procedures in academic freedom cases, standards for investigation, and selected judicial decisions and scholarly writings related to AAUP policy.
