"California School Law" provides the first comprehensive discussion of how law affects the day-to-day operation of the state's public, charter, and private schools. The book is written for a wide audience including policymakers, governing board members, school administrators, union leaders, teachers, school law attorneys, education law professors and their students, and parents. In its twelve chapters, readers will find a detailed yet readable account of the many ways law structures the delivery of educational services in California. Beginning with an explanation of the legal framework within which California schooling takes place, the book examines constitutional, statutory, and judicial law governing attendance and instruction, school accountability, school finance, the collective bargaining process, employment, free speech, religion, the delivery of services to children with disabilities, student discipline, open meetings and records, privacy and student search and seizure, race and gender discrimination and harassment, and legal liability.
