Encyclopedia of Law and Higher Education

Edited by:


December 2009 | 584 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
In light of the significance that education law occupies in the professional lives of educators, it is only natural that it plays a major role in educational leadership programs devoted to preparing leaders for both the world of higher education and K-12 schools. The centrality of education law is reflected in a study conducted on behalf of the University Council for Educational Administration revealing that education law is the second-most commonly taught subject in educational leadership programs. Further, with many universities offering a variety of courses on education law at all levels, it continues to occupy a crucial element in the curricula for educators. Despite its importance, there is a surprising dearth of readily accessible reference materials for academicians and practitioners. Thus, the Encyclopedia of Law and Higher Education fills a gap that will be of use to those in the world of higher education, whether students, faculty members, administrators, or attorneys.

"....The entries are written broadly enough so that audiences ranging from advanced undergraduates up through legal practitioners will find them useful.... [A] good starting point for a basic understanding of the laws surrounding the education field. Summing Up: Recommended. ** Upper-level undergraduates through professionals/ practitioners."
