Higher education and the law by Harry T Edwards( Book )

5 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proliferation of laws, regulations, and judicial opinions affecting higher education and the nature of the impact of these laws on the academic community are examined. Designed for use by both students and practitioners, the book employs the "case method" design based on the belief that law cases furnish the best sources for study and review of legal developments. Part One, "The College or University As a Legal Entity," discusses the college or university as a legal entity, legal attributes of private universities, the constitutionally autonomous university, and public universities without constitutional status. Part Two, "Faculty Rights," examines academic freedom and related substantive constitutional rights, faculty tenure, and unionization and collective bargaining. Part Three, "Student Rights," examines substantive constitutional rights of students, procedural due process, the contract theory, the student as consumer, and miscellaneous issues concerning student rights. The final section, "Federal Regulation of Higher Education," includes the impact of federal regulation, equal educational opportunities, Title ix of the Education Amendments of 1972, equal job opportunities under the law, affirmative action, age discrimination, Equal Pay Act, the Rehabilitation Act, family rights, student loans, copyright law, and miscellaneous federal regulations. A preface, summary table of contents, reference materials, and table of cases are provided. Supplements to the book will be published on an annual basis updating material appearing in this volume.

Legal Issues in Urban Education by Virginia Davis Nordin( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Major legal issues confront urban schools today, among them: (1) equal access of racial groups to quality education; (2) students' rights to due process; (3) teachers' rights to due process, academic freedom, collective bargaining, and promotion to administrative positions; (4) equal opportunity for those needing special education; (5) equal opportunity for females; and (6) equal opportunity to share the public's education dollar. A number of legal directives are demanding response from urban school districts. These directives come from Supreme Court decisions, federal funding and administrative regulations, and State court decisions, administrative regulations, and legislation. Often, however, urban educators concerned with desegregation and equal opportunity think first of the Supreme Court. The Court has made major decisions on financing, teachers' rights, sick leave for pregnancy, students' rights, and desegregation. The Court has not yet addressed the issue of athletics for girls. Urban educators should take advantage of the opportunities to reform and redirect education provided by the courts in their recent decisions. (Author/MK)
Employees by Virginia Davis Nordin( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Cases involving employment interests of teachers, administrators, and other school employees generally continue trends set in earlier years. Discrimination considerations continue to play an important role. One area in which the courts might be said to intervene somewhat more than in others is the prevention and remediation of race discrimination. Courts have been quick to defend the rights of black employees both in districts under desegregation orders and in other cases, such as the case mandating more hiring of minorities in a St. Louis suburban system. Despite the amount of legislation regulating sex discrimination, relatively few cases reached the courts during the past year. One of the most significant opinions was the decision by the supreme court of Indiana invalidating the adoption of separate actuarial tables for the computation of benefits of male and female retired teachers. Other traditional areas of concern receiving attention are employee dismissal and discipline, tenure and seniority, and questions of substantive and procedural due process. (Author/IRT)

Is Sex Suspect? and Other Issues Regarding Sex Discrimination inEducation by Virginia Davis Nordin( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This chapter presents a long look at the development of the concept of sex discrimination in education to see whether trends or key cases can be identified and discussed. In this a comparison is essayed with the development of the concept of racial discrimination in education through the school desegregation cases to see what the race cases might teach about the potential development of a jurisprudence of sex discrimination in education. Two important preliminary observations are (1) there is a failure to apply precedents regarding discrimination in racial cases to sex discrimination cases; (2) the number of "reverse discrimination" cases seems to equal or exceed cases brought by the women whom the laws were enacted to protect. While it may be especially disappointing to women that discrimination precedents from racial cases do not apply to them, the greater disappointment is in the failure of the legal system to uphold impartial standards for all. The sex discrimination cases will force education through the courts if the populace will not learn another way. (Author/IRT)

Civility on Campus: Harassment Codes Vs. Free Speech. Ashe Annual Meeting Paper by Virginia Davis Nordin( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In response to the resurgence of racial incidents and increased "gay-bashing" on higher education campuses in recent years, campus authorities have instituted harassment codes thereby giving rise to a conflicts with free speech. Similar conflicts and challenges to free speech have arisen recently in a municipal context such as a St. Paul ordinance applied to a cross burning incident recently upheld in the Minnesota Supreme Court. However, these conflicts with free speech on campuses also raise issues of academic freedom complicated by the traditional academic abstention doctrine. This concern for civility is not new, in particular, the Politeness Movement established by philosopher David Hume had a lasting and broad impact on academic culture. In the current debate central questions include whether free speech is really free if one side is too intimidated to speak, what the responsibility of the university is to guarantee free speech and whether there should be an academic-pedological exception to free speech guarantees. The constitutional protection of free speech relates essentially to the rights of the citizen, but the scholar on campus is in a special position defined more accurately by academic freedom than free speech.
