Section Description

In this course we will conduct survey of the laws and regulations that govern public education. The course will focus on the central principles and key concepts of education law, emphasizing the relationship between legal frameworks and their practical implications for the day-to-day operation of schools. We will look at the formal statutes and regulations that govern education, as well as looking at how these laws are implemented in the real world, by looking at legal decisions, case studies and practical scenarios. Topics will include federal and state regulation of education and teaching standards, discipline and safety, constitutional issues, harassment and bullying, educational records, special education and 504 regulations, and school district administrative regulations.
