Clearly written and carefully organized, Law and Education: Contemporary Issues and Court Decisions, Ninth Edition, is designed to assist school board members, administrators, teachers, and the attorneys who represent them. Law and Education spells out the rights and responsibilities of school board members, administrators, and professional staff in the context of current law and today's educational environment. The Ninth Edition analyzes historical trends, brings each issue up to date, and offers insight into possible future developments.

Building on the information contained in the first eight editions, the text explains the background of each issue discussed and updates the discussions with over one hundred new case citations. With comprehensive coverage of constitutional law and federal and state case law, the Ninth Edition is an excellent reference for all school personnel, and the information is easily accessible to non-lawyers.
