Book Description

August 15, 2000 0292743424 978-0292743427 5th
Since 1986, school administrators, school board members, school attorneys, teachers, coaches, counsellors, and university professors have relied upon this highly popular and standard reference source. Newly revised to include legislative and judicial developments to the year 2000, the Fifth Edition of "The Educator's Guide to Texas School Law" provides the most current, comprehensive source on Texas education law available. The authors have extensively updated all the chapters in this edition and have added much new information to help educators manage the challenges of the new century successfully. Among the topics added to the Fifth Edition are employee drug testing, contract termination decisions issued by the certified hearing examiners, the Texas Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and legal issues involving the Internet. Readers will find an expanded review of federal disability law, with emphasis on new developments involving the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The legal liability discussion has been expanded to encompass the dramatic increase in court rulings on sexual abuse and harassment. The Fifth Edition also includes all relevant federal and state court rulings and the decisions of the Texas Commissioner of Education. Frank Kemerer is Regents Professor of Education Law and Administration at the University of North Texas. Jim Walsh is senior partner in the law firm of Walsh, Anderson, Brown, Schulze & Aldridge, P.C., with offices in Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas-Fort Worth.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for Texas educators December 9, 1999
Format:Paperback
Authors Frank Kemerer and Jim Walsh have written one of those "must-haves" that belongs in your professional library. If you are an educator in Texas, you need this book. Readable and thorough, the book touches all areas of concern, with emphasis on how the law applies in Texas. Kemerer is Regents Professor of Education Law and Administration at UNT and Walsh is senior partner in the Walsh, Anderson, Underwood, Schulze & Alderidge firm which has been heavily involved with districts across the state for some time now. This one is a needful reference, no matter what you level you teach.

A must read book, if you're a teacher in Texas or hold an administrator position in Texas. Because, what you don't know can hurt you and your career.

Format:Paperback
Every teacher should know school law in his/her state. I recommend this book to all Texas educators. It is concise and provides the reader with the ability to judge the provisions of state law regarding teacher and student rights, to see the simplified version of state legislation as it affects schools, and to understand reasons for the laws enacted by legislators which so affect the education of students in Texas. Any questions an educator might have regarding any part of a law are well explained. The book's author Jim Walsh has done a magnificient job of delineating just what can and cannot be done in the classroom, what can be done by administrators and by teachers, and what effects actions of others have on students and their education. Teachers, after reading the book, can interact intelligently with administrators when dealing with situations which affect education. For so long, teachers have been told what the state law says. Now we can judge for ourselves whether or not those "in the know" really know Texas school law. Finally, we have a revised edition which explains it all!

I ususally try to get rid of books for classes as soon as I can, so they won't just sit around the house collecting dust. I found this book at such a great price. The information in this book in invaluable to an administrator in the state of Texas.

This is an easy to follow book that covers any questions an educator may have over just about any law. I loved that it had a regular index as well as an index of court cases.
