Avoiding Legal Hassles, Second Edition addresses the legal issues facing schools and administrators. The book is both comprehensive and brief. It is comprehensive because it covers virtually every legal challenge faced by school schools today. It is brief because issues are summarized, emphasizing only the most important concepts. The book highlights major outcomes and court decisions regarding education, as well as outlines the laws which shape the actions of school boards and administration. As the courts have recently ruled on many cases involving schools and their capability to accommodate students with special needs, this Second Edition book puts increased emphasis on the issues surrounding special education and students with disabilities. William A Streshly and Larry E Frase, two experienced school administrators, and John Walsh, a practicing attorney, combined their knowledge of the judicial system with the needs of educators to present a collection of quick reference summaries of the laws and how to apply them appropriately.
