School Bullying: How Long is the Arm of the Law? - James C. Hanks
Call Number: KF4159 .H36 2012
ISBN: 1614386277
Publication Date: 2012
Antibullying is a cause embraced at every level of society, from the grass roots to the federal government. Yet despite well-published efforts to tackle it, bullying persists. The consequences for students and for the educational community are always painful, and sometime tragic. The law has responded to the problem of bullying at the state and local level, through the adoption of statutes and state or local policies. This guide reviews state statutes and case law concerning bullying, explores the constitutional issues that arise from the application of antibullying regulations, examines federal guidance on harassment, and offers suggestions for a systematic approach to bullying.

Call Number: KF4133 .N67 2016

The focus of The Legal World of the School Principal is to emphasize the legal responsibilities of the school principal.

Research studies have revealed that a large majority of school principals spends over twenty percent of their time on matters that involve legal contentions. In addition, principals report they were not well prepared to meet the legal challenges facing them in their leadership roles. Landmark court cases relating to education are discussed as well as the federal and state court systems commonly found in the United States.
