ISBN 9781683281641

Legal Issues in Education is a clearly written, uniquely organized, and practical text on education law for aspiring school leaders, researchers, and others invested in the future of public education in the United States. The book provides thoughtful syntheses of up-to-date case law framed around key issues facing today's educators, leaders and policymakers—from practical guidance pertaining to school safety to broader policy concerns regarding access and equal educational opportunity.
Bruce D. Baker, Ed.D. Professor of Educational Theory, Policy and Administration Graduate School of Education—Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

Welner, Kim, and Biegel distill in these pages an encyclopedic and comprehensive knowledge of equity issues in education, making their book a must-read for anyone interested in education opportunity or in safeguarding civil rights and civil liberties in public schools today.
Catherine E. Lhamon, former Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education and current chair of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights

Welner, Kim, and Biegel expertly weave together their collective knowledge of education policy and law, with a powerful focus on equity. This new book provides an essential foundation for the next generation of education researchers and policymakers. We all need to understand how the law influences critical forces that impact educational opportunity, including school accountability and funding, desegregation, ability tracking, student retention, and the education of emerging bilinguals and students with disabilities.
Jeannie Oakes, Ph.D. Senior Fellow, Learning Policy Institute Presidential Professor Emeritus, University of California, Los Angeles Past President, American Educational Research Association
