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.

Education Law, 5th Edition provides a comprehensive survey of the legal problems and issues that confront school administrators and policymakers today. This textbook is organized around the belief that students need to read court cases to understand the subtlety and richness of the law, but for legal neophytes, cases without discussion and interpretation are often too difficult to comprehend. Thus, the text balances an explanation of the important principles of education law, with actual court decisions to illuminate these concepts. The court decisions are carefully edited to highlight issues most relevant to administrators, and each chapter explores implications for policy and practice. New in the Fifth Edition: Additional content on bullying, student privacy, free speech rights, teacher evaluation, collective bargaining, and issues relating to Internet and technology. Revision of materials dealing with education policy and updating of references and case law throughout. A companion website with materials for students and instructors, including links to full cases, a glossary of key concepts, and discussion questions to help students further engage with the content.

What exactly is education policy, why is it important, and how is it implemented in the real world? Jerome Delaney, a professor of educational administration and former high school principal, answers the big questions about education policy in this powerful and practical primer for students. Informed by his experience in the public school system, Delaney takes a pragmatic and realistic approach that divides a complicated subject into manageable sub-topics.

Starting from the basics and progressing through to the deeper aspects of education policy, this text provides an excellent introduction to a subject that lies at the foundation of every education system. This second edition includes a new chapter on issues relating to policy implementation, as well as new discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Topics include: A beginner’s overview of education policy studies. How values influence policy-making. How education policy is developed, implemented, and evaluated.

This book outlines the findings and suggestions of the Law and Society Association’s International Research Collaborations, which focused on the African Union’s Agenda 2063. This outlined the ideal Africa aspired to by the year 2063: ‘the Africa we want’. The authors examine socio-economic rights issues and their impact on developing a strong educational agenda that can drive Africa to realize Agenda 2063. As Africa’s development has remained slow in the face of many challenges, the need to embrace good governance, rule of law and human rights obligations are major tools to realize the continent’s potential. The project focuses in particular on the central place of education law and policy in achieving the goals of Agenda 2063.

This work analyzes the relationship between educational planning and the law, and provides the planner or administrator with invaluable tools for the elaboration and implementation of policies and reforms. The author presents the legal aspects of the different elements that make up the school system, and studies them in the context of the types of problems encountered by educational planners today. Several topical themes, such as decentralization and its administrative consequences, are looked at in particular detail. The study deliberately concentrates on countries that belong to the civil law tradition, thus complementing a previous title (n 46) in this collection on the common law countries.
