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.
