Imber (educational leadership and policy studies, U. of Kansas) and van Geel (education, U. of Rochester) offer a survey of the legal problems and issues school administrators and policy makers face. They explain concepts and principles of education law and present court decisions to illustrate them, as well as implications of the law for educational policy and practice. Topics include curriculum, student discipline, equal education opportunity, school finance, teacher employment, and unions. They focus on generally applicable principles rather than specific state laws, but note where they vary. This edition has been completely updated to incorporate case law and legislation from the past five years. New topics since the first edition include No Child Left Behind, student rights, employment discrimination, racial and sexual harassment, vouchers and government assistance to private and religious schools, affirmative action, equity and adequacy in school finance, internet issues, and special populations. About half of the chapters have had major revisions, and the table of cases has about 300 more entries. No knowledge of law is needed. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
