A Digest of Supreme Court Decisions Affecting Education provides a comprehensive and current canvassing of all the Supreme Court decisions directly affecting policies and practices of K-12 school. The book covers more than 350 Supreme Court decisions and extends back to the earliest decisions at the start of the 20th century and forward to the Court’s most recent term ending in June 2009. The chapters concern governance issues, church-state cases, student rights/responsibilities, employee cases, discrimination decisions, special civil rights rulings, and technical adjudicative cases. A readable summary addresses each decision, consisting of its facts, holding (or ruling), and legal basis/rationale. A glossary and other appendices are designed to make the book readable and usable by a wide range of readers interested in education law.
