American public school law

Uses the case method to provide graduate students in education as well as law students with a comprehensive view of the complex web of laws and court decisions governing the US public school system. The authors, Kern Alexander (president, Murray State U., Kentucky) and M. David Alexander (educational leadership and policy studies, Virginia Tech), range across all of the civil, criminal, and constitutional laws that touch students, teachers, and administrators. New to this edition are discussions of the Supremacy Clause, the Eleventh Amendment, sovereign powers of states, charter schools, and the refinement of the legal definition of free public schools.
