This comprehensive casebook presents thorough coverage of a complex and dynamic subject--educational law and policy in the elementary and secondary school setting. With an emphasis on the interplay between law and policy, legal decisions, and educational practice, the book's interdisciplinary approach provides a wide range of perspectives on the most pressing issues in the field. Cases, legislation, and articles, all of which are accompanied by notes and discussion questions, clarify the issues and bring them to life. The book draws upon a range of social science sources as well as conventional legal materials, offering analyses that provide insights into the political and policy contexts of legal issues, and helping readers make sense of legal decisions. The abundant notes and references also make the book a useful reference work for lawyers or school administrators working in the field.

Almost every significant educational policy issue in the United States implicates legal issues. Policy debates about testing and school choice, for example, cannot be disentangled from legal rights and mandates. The same is true for issues of funding, campus safety, special education, and English language learners. Yet no book aimed at a general audience (as opposed to an audience of lawyers or law students) presents these current policy issues from a legal perspective. The proposed book - which will consist of approximately 12 chapters, each approximately 20 pages long - will explore compelling educational policy issues through that legal lens. The chapters will build an understanding of both law and policy. The chapters will be written by a group of authors enrolled in a doctoral seminar at CU-Boulder's School of Education. The book's editors are Kevin Welner, associate professor of educational policy at CU-Boulder, and Wendy Chi, a current doctoral student at CU-Boulder. Both hold JD degrees (Welner: 1988, UCLA Law; Chi: 2003, University of Michigan Law). The students will include approximately twelve Ph.D. students and six MA students, all working under the supervision and clos an external editor for each chapter. This will help to add rigor and credibility, and it will also help to get the word out. The intended audience includes the usual audience for educational policy books, as well as two more specific audiences: educational law students and scholars, and school & society (teacher-education) students.

Educational policy controversies in the United States invariably implicate legal issues. Policy debates about testing and school choice, for example, cannot be disentangled from legal rights and mandates. The same is true for issues such as funding, campus safety, speech and religion rights, as well as the teaching of immigrant students. Written for a general audience, this new twelvechapter book explores these compelling educational policy issues through that legal lens, building an understanding of both law and policy. The book's editors are Kevin Welner, associate professor of educational policy at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and Wendy Chi, a doctoral candidate at Boulder. Both Welner and Chi are lawyers as well as educational scholars.

The driving influence of managed care and cost containment is causing home care organizations to reconceptualize their roles in the health care delivery system while stimulating massive changes in agency structure, operations, and services. Medicare-certified home health agencies, which have flourished under a per-visit, fee-for-service reimbursement model, are increasingly delivering care under managed care reimbursement models. Conducted at this pivotal point in time, the book examines the intersection of two rapidly growing health care sectors: home health and managed care.The environment surrounding the transition from traditional reimbursement to managed care is uncertain and rapidly changing. Strategies organizations are using to cope with this uncertainty and HHA administrators' perceptions of the two greatest impacts of managed care are described.Despite considerable variation in agency characteristics, more similarities than differences are found among HHAs. The research concludes that market and environment pressures within heavily HMO-penetrated communities encourage all HHAs to become similar, regardless of whether the HHAs have managed care contracts.

Challenging students to question the political and philosophical assumptions underlying the law, Education Law, Policy, and Practice promotes a depth of understanding about the key cases and statutes. The authors integrate the law with policy and practice, following related political, financial, and practical issues. The law is presented through a teachable mix of key cases and materials on the practice and political aspects of school law, and an effective macro organization helps place topics into an integrated framework. Each of the major issues in education law is discussed at length: the boundaries of public and private, church and state, relations; school governance and the tensions between federal power and local control; the rights and responsibilities of students and teachers; and the educational environment and its liabilities. "Practicums" in each section allow students to apply the law to realistic situations. Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents: critical new cases decided by the Supreme Court affirmative action the role of religion in public schools the rights of students to freedom of expression in school and at schools events the rights of students to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures the substantive and procedural protections of special education legislation broader treatment of school funding at the state and local level, including state court adequacy and equity litigation enhanced coverage of the role of race in American education a thorough treatment of the long line of Supreme Court cases regarding affirmative action leading up to its latest opinion in Fisher a comprehensive treatment of the empirical evidence of the role of race in the "achievement gap" and in school discipline new sections on standards and accountability, including teacher evaluation and proposed revisions to tenure increased emphasis on the range of school reform and school choice, e.g. charter schools coverage of school violence, zero tolerance discipline policies, and "school to prison pipeline" new sections on technology in schools--internet use policies, texting, and sexting latest developments in the law and policy regarding bullying developments in important law and policy governing early childhood education refined practical exercises sharpened comparative law notes

This edited volume focuses on how international education policy, set by international policymakers and donors, influences local education policy in developing countries. The book’s primary purpose is to give voice to scholars from developing countries and regions around the world by inviting them to explore how the international policy, invariably linked to international aid, influences education policy formation and implementation in their country or region and how this influence does or does not meet the local cultural, social, economic, and political needs. A relatively recent and small body of research and commentary supports a discourse that questions how well international education policy mandates such as Education For All serve the needs of developing countries. The intent of this book is to advance this discourse by giving voice to local scholars who observe and study the donor process. The book will be divided into two sections: the first section will set the stage for the discussions in the second section by providing theoretical and historical context for international education policy. As a framework for understanding, the book adopts the position that international policy does not have either the ability or the intent to serve the widely diverse needs of development around the world. International education policy has been formed, historically, by wealthy nations and agencies dominated by Western theoretical paradigms. In recent years, donor countries have made an effort to collaborate with developing countries in developing international education policy goals; however, this collaboration has been limited. Following establishment of the context of international education policy, section II of the book provides a forum for scholars from around the world to openly discuss and critique the impact of international policy on education in their country or region.

Education Policy and Evaluation: A Context for Change offers one perspective in defining the problems of public policy in education and some suggestions for redirection. Based on research conducted at five major school districts in California, this book reveals children's expectations for public education, as well as the performance of public schools and their vision for the future. The areas of strength and weakness in educational policy are discussed, along with the needs for revision in educational policy and performance. Comprised of seven chapters, this book begins with an assessment of serious failure in public education, citing the proliferation of programs, personnel and administrative structures in public education without adequate design, coordination, implementation, evaluation, or adaptation to meet basic educational needs or to solve the complex problems implicit in the delivery of public educational services. Subsequent chapters focus on the concept of social innovation and the role of the federal government as an agent of educational change; the tension between structure and process in educational policy; the problem of specification in the implementation of educational policy; and evaluation as an instrument for educational change. This monograph will be of interest to students, parents, educators, community leaders, legislators, scholars, school administrators, and educational policymakers.
