This reference on the important topics of educational employment law and personnel management provides practical, up-to-date information for current and aspiring school administrators, as well as school law attorneys and professors of education law. Many of the authors have rich experience acquired from serving in multiple educational and legal roles through the course of their careers.
The book draws heavily from chapters adapted from the Education Law Association’s popular The Principal’s Legal Handbook 6th Edition, but goes several steps further. It includes a comprehensive review of federal anti-discrimination laws, as well as providing several hypothetical cases intended to serve as learning platforms to apply legal concepts.
