The sixth edition of this book, first published thirty years ago by Dr. Mawdsley, updates legal issues facing religious and private organizations. Leaders in these organizations will find this book helpful in taking preventive measures to keep their schools out of court. The amount of litigation continues to increase for nonpublic organizations, and problems such as security and bullying that have become commonplace in public schools are becoming issues for nonpublic organizations as well. Background checks and better supervision of student conduct are becoming expectations, not only in nonpublic schools, but in other programs of religious organizations that address instruction for both children and adults on religious days. Nonetheless, private K-12 schools furnished the earliest education in the United States and continue to be the choice for quality education today as well.
