Educational law for school administrators stresses the interplay of law and policy, legal decision making, and educational practice. Among the issues addressed are the relationship between schooling and the state, the nature and scope of students' and teachers' substantive and procedural rights, the legal aspects of instructional program management, tort liability, and the many meanings of equal educational opportunity. Special attention is given to the importance that respect for individual rights, equal protection for the law, due process, and reasonable conduct have on administrative decision making and providing leadership for school improvement.
