Parents, schools, and the law by David Schimmel( Book )

5 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores parents' legal rights concerning their children's elementary and secondary education. Besides certain constitutional rights (including parents' right to direct their children's education), parents and students have been granted various rights under state and federal statutes. This book aims to demystify the law and provide parents with the necessary knowledge to assert their rights (outside the court system) and bring violations to the attention of teachers, administrators, and other parents so that their children receive an appropriate education. Following a brief overview of parents' rights, chapters 2 through 6 discuss rights derived from the Constitution, including a student's right to fair treatment by a school disciplinary system, First Amendment protections of freedom of speech and press, freedom of religion and separation of church and state, and equal educational opportunity. Chapters 7 through 9 focus on the common law and state control of education, covering compensation for injured children, damages collection for poor teaching, and conflicts between parent and state education agencies. Chapter 10 treats parents' rights concerning school records under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. Chapter 11 discusses federal law governing rights of parents of children with special education needs, highlighting the Education for All Children Act of 1975. Chapter 12 concerns physical appearance (proper dress), while chapter 13 confronts the rights of poor and non-English-speaking parents and children. The final chapter covers legal literacy for parents. Three appendices provide constitutional amendments of special relevance to parents and students, legal research hints, and two Supreme Court decisions. Also included are a table of cases, chapter endnotes, and an index. (Mlh)
The rights of parents in the education of their children by David Schimmel( Book )

7 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the legal rights that parents have in the education of their children from kindergarten through high school. These rights are of two kinds: the rights that parents have on their own, as parents, and the rights they have as agents for their children. Currently, all the constitutional rights that apply to adults in the community also apply to young people in the public schools. The purpose of this book is to enable parents of public school students to constructively take the law into their own hands. Its aim is to provide them with the knowledge necessary to assert their rights and to bring violations to the attention of teachers, administrators and other parents so that they can help their children receive the kind of education to which they are legally entitled. Specifically, individual chapters deal with: a students' right to be treated fairly by a school disciplinary system; the First Amendment protection of freedom of speech and press; freedom of religion and the separation of church and state as it affects the public schools; personal appearance; the constitutional right of equal educational opportunity and the violation of this right because of racial or sexual discrimination; the common law and state control of education; federal statutory rights; parents' rights; and legal literacy for parents. It discusses ways parents can learn more about the law and ways that legal literacy can be improved throughout the country. It examines a wide range of constitutional, statutory, and common law rights that parents can assert on behalf of their children and their childrens' education. (Author/AM)

Research that makes a difference : complementary methods for examining legal issues in education by David Schimmel( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Administrators, attorneys, and graduate students who are interested in law and education or in research methods will find this book useful. Rarely do researchers combine several methods for examining legal issues in education from multiple perspectives. Here four authors offer four different research methods that can be used in combination. Each author offers a rationale for his or her method, specific legal examples relating to controversial issues, and a bibliography. Each also explains the advantages and limitations of his or her strategy and how it compares to other methods. In the first chapter, Louise Adler examines the qualitative method, emphasizing why and how society creates specific laws. In the second chapter, Charles Russo delineates the traditional approach of asking exactly what the law is, based on statutes, cases, and other legal sources. In the third chapter, Grover Baldwin surveys the quantitative strategy. This can be described as using statistics to analyze data and the relationship between variables. Finally, Patricia First considers the policy-studies perspective, which uses multiple methods to analyze options and to provide comprehensive information to decision makers in their efforts to improve legal and educational policies.

Principals avoiding lawsuits : how teachers can be partners in practicing preventive law by David Schimmel( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book gives principals the tools they need to avoid lawsuits by teaching their staff the information they need to practice preventive law. Lawsuits often begin when teachers unintentionally violate students' rights such as searching a student's cell phone without reasonable suspicion or failing to follow a student's Individualized Education Program. These violations do not occur because teachers intend to break the law. They occurred because the vast majority of teachers are not required to learn about the rights and responsibilities of students and teachers in their teacher preparation programs. As a result, most teachers get their legal information from the 'law school' of the teachers' lounge--that is, from colleagues who are similarly uninformed and misinformed. Instead, what teachers want and need is an in-service program that will provide them with a basic understanding of school law. But most busy principals don't have the time, knowledge and resources to provide such a program for their staff. This book...provides principals with the resources and lesson plans they need to incorporate school law into their professional development program. As a result, their teachers will get their information about school law from a reliable source - not from the rumors, fears and myths of the teachers' lounge. By empowering their teachers with legal knowledge, principals and teachers will avoid lawsuits by becoming partners in the practice of preventive law."--

Prayer, the Courts and the Schools A Continuing Case of Confusion by David Schimmel( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To help clarify the school prayer controversy, this article examines recent court decisions concerning three issues: organized prayer, silent prayer or meditation, and prayers at graduation, assemblies, and extracurricular activities. In "Wallace vs. Jaffree" (1985), the United States Supreme Court reaffirmed its consistent opposition to organized school prayer by overturning an Alabama law authorizing silence for meditation or voluntary prayer. Whether compulsory or voluntary, prayer recitations are clearly prohibited. However, schools may require a moment of silence for reflection or meditation without violating the First Amendment. Statutes authorizing silence for "meditation or prayer" may be permissible. The Supreme Court had not yet ruled on prayer at school ceremonies; lower courts have consistently applied the "Lemon vs. Kurtzman" three-part test requiring statutes to have a secular purpose and effect and avoid excessive entanglement with religion. Although the Jaffree case met the test, Justices Warren and Burger wrote dissenting opinions viewing prevention of an established national religion as the real issue. The Burger-Rehnquist stance may predominate if President Ronald Reagan appoints new Supreme Court justices who share his intent to reestablish school prayer. (MLH)
Legal Literacy and Teacher Education A Case Approach Based on the Rights of Teachers and Students by Louis Fischer( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This speech, while noting the existence of law-related projects in inservice teacher education courses, stresses the need for law-related education in both preservice and inservice courses. The method for presenting law-related material in preservice education courses as described herein would not call for the introduction of new courses or units, but would require modification of two courses commonly found in departments of education: introduction to education and social foundations of education. A sample course outline is provided. Within this outline, specific cases are discussed under the following topic headings, which could be used in foundation courses: (a) cultural diversity and the schools, (b) freedom of expression, (c) private life and personal appearance, (d) patriotism and freedom of association, (e) professionalism, (f) due process for students and teachers, and (g) education and equality. Suggested classroom methods include (a) discussion of materials read, (b) visits to a university library to explore the legal reporter system, (c) discussion of hypothetical cases, (d) use of resource speakers, and (e) visits to nearby courts.

Teachers and the Law. Sixth Edition by Louis Fischer( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about teachers and the laws that affect them. New to this sixth edition are new court cases and a chapter that highlights likely controversies in the coming years, including school choice, high-stakes testing, control of the Internet, and gang clothing.

Part I, "The Legal Aspects of Teaching," addresses questions related to teacher contracts, dismissals, tenure, collective bargaining, liability, child abuse, defamation, and copyright laws.

The book follows a question-and-answer format. Most of the questions and answers are based on reported court cases. Each chapter begins with an overview and ends with a summary and endnotes. Included in appendices are selected provisions of the U.S. Constitution, a summary of major civil laws affecting schools, and a list of legal resources for teachers.
