Legal problems of religious and private schools by Ralph D Mawdsley( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 1995 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The range of nonpublic schools in the United States is considerable, from home instruction by parents to prestigious private schools, with or without religious affiliation. The continuing growth in nonpublic education can hardly be blamed on a disenchantment with or an apathy toward public schools; the central common denominator is a basic concern that parents should be able to determine the forum for education. While not itself the sole cause for withdrawal of children from a public school, the inability of parents to effect changes in public school programs or curricula because of judicially imposed impediments has probably contributed to parental and student frustration. Within the six sections of this document, select legal problems of religious and private schools are examined including: (1) tort liability regarding such topics as charitable immunity, field trips, and supervision of students; (2) institution, student, and faculty relations and constitutional and contractual considerations; (3) governing board liability; (4) governmental regulation of nonpublic schools; (5) federal antidiscrimination legislation; and (6) special problems including the issues of copyrights, the bankruptcy code and students debts, and the Immigration and Reform Control Act.

Search and seizure in the public schools by Lawrence F Rossow( Book )

7 editions published between 1987 and 1995 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph attempts to provide clear understanding of the standards presented by the Supreme Court in "New Jersey V.T.L.O." relative to search and seizure in public schools, and suggests practical ways of applying search and seizure law to situations in the school setting. ("T.L.O." are the initials of the anonymous student.) After an introduction, section 2 examines students' rights and the Fourth Amendment, describing the amendment's source and applicability in public schools. The reasonableness standard is examined in the third section, applying the standard to "New Jersey V.T.L.O." and detailing a two-pronged test, the tips formula. Taking into account certain variables, the tips formula aids in search and seizure decisions by defining reasonable search as comprising two elements: (1) reasonable suspicion, examining the thing to be found and the information source; and (2) reasonable scope, involving the place or person being searched and the measures used in the actual search. (Tips stands for the thing to be found, the information source, the place or person being searched, and the search methods.) Considerations of penalties, involvement of the police, and common errors are examined in section 4. Section 5 focuses on application of the reasonableness standard after the "New Jersey v T.L.O." case and discusses other cases involving search and seizure and/or drug testing. Sections 6 and 7 contain a summary, and conclusion and remarks, respectively. Included in the monograph are five figures. (Wth)

Legal aspects of teacher evaluation by Joseph Beckham( Book )

2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teacher evaluation is fraught with difficulties for several reasons. On the one hand, it is directed to self-improvement and remediation, while on the other, it can be utilized as a tool for nonrenewal of a contract, demotion, reassignment, or dismissal. Moreover, educational researchers are far from reaching consensus on the characteristics associated with teaching success. The successful institution of a policy of teacher evaluation is subject to the influences of teacher unions, community groups, and administrative leadership as well as legal constraints and mandates governing due process, equal protection, and reasonable administrative action. This monograph first addresses constitutional guarantees of substantive and procedural due process, especially where these protections have compelled judicial scrutiny of employment decisions in public educational settings. The second section of the monograph covers federal constitutional and statutory provisions barring discrimination and ensuring equal protection of the law. The final section of the study examines selected legal opinions and statutory laws related to state standards for teacher evaluation. (Author/WD)
Legal aspects of plagiarism by Ralph D Mawdsley( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The prohibition of student plagiarism by educational institutions creates problems associated with: (1) communicating acceptable practices for citing the works of others; (2) establishing appropriate penalties for those who do not follow the announced standards; (3) ensuring, through due process, the protection of the rights of those accused of plagiarism; and (4) avoiding violations of copyright law. This guide to institutional policy development considers both the academic and the legal issues involved in plagiarism cases. The first chapter pays specific attention to: (1) the promulgation of comprehensible definitions of plagiarism, (2) the provision of adequate notice of the existence of an institutional policy, (3) the legal importance of determining whether the plagiarism was intentional, and (4) the extent of the contractual nature of the relationship of student to institution. The second chapter looks closely at whether plagiarism is an academic or disciplinary matter and considers students' rights in disciplinary actions. The third chapter focuses on three legal issues involving copyrighted material: the ownership of student-produced plagiarized material, the "fair use" of copyrighted material, and the copyrightability of plagiarized material. Examples of plagiarism provided in Dartmouth College's student handbook are appended. (Pgd)

Legal issues in the dismissal of teachers for personal conduct by Floyd G Delon( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Limited to teacher conduct of a nonverbal nature occurring outside the school setting, this monograph presents the case law resulting from the dismissal of teachers for unacceptable conduct. The first section reviews literature on teachers' personal conduct. The second deals with the issue of whether a teacher is obligated to serve as an exemplar for students and concludes that the requirement has been abandoned in many jurisdictions but retained in others, such as Pennsylvania and Maine. The second section discusses whether a nexus must be established between objectionalbe personal conduct and fitness to teach; it is concluded that this requirement gained wide acceptance in the 1970s. Addressed in the second section is the question of vagueness of the term "immorality" in dismissal statutes, noting that only in Oregon have the courts considered this term unconstitutionally vague. Substantive due process is discussed in the fourth section, with the final conclusion that a board policy rationally related to a legitimate purpose is likely to withstand a substantive due process challenge. Section five looks at a teachers' constitutional right to privacy, noting that this right is not yet clearly defined. (Author/JM)

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This guide reviews legal standards inherent in the First Amendment and recommends management techniques that ensure employees' free speech rights while maintaining school efficiency. Section 1, "Introduction," presents an overview of the trend toward litigation in which public employees allege that school officials have violated First Amendment rights. "The First Amendment Standards in School Employment," section 2, applies Supreme Court holdings to the school environment. Section 3,"The Usual First Amendment Case," explores the reasons employees normally sue--perceived unfair or undignified treatment. "Preventing the First Amendment Case," section 4, recommends that officials avoid circumstances that lead to lawsuits. The section investigates leadership, employees' rights, evaluation and documentation, and the grievance process. Section 5, "Potential First Amendment Pitfalls," evaluates problem areas in management decisions, including the chain of command and employee civil disobedience. "Evaluating and Executing Adverse Employment Decisions," section 6, reviews processes involved when a supervisor terminates an employee engaged in a free speech activity. Section 7, "Summary and Conclusion," suggests that administrators establish an environment of fair treatment and that supervisors respond immediately to employee needs. Three appendices are included.
