A Digest of Supreme Court Decisions Affecting Education, Fifth Edition

Perry A. Zirkel

A Digest of Supreme Court Decisions Affecting Education provides a comprehensive canvassing of all U.S. Supreme Court decisions directly affecting policies and practices of K-12 schools. The Fifth Edition, published in 2009, covers more than 350 Supreme Court decisions and extends back to the earliest school-related decisions at the start of the 20th century and forward to the end of the Court term that ended in June 2009. The chapters concern governance issues, church-state cases, student rights and responsibilities, employee matters, issues of discrimination, special civil rights rulings, and procedural parameters. A readable summary addresses each decision, consisting of its facts, the holding of the Court, and the legal basis or 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.
