2014 Supplement to A Digest of Supreme Court Decisions Affecting Education, 5th Edition
(2014, Education Law Association)
This supplement to A Digest of Supreme Court Decisions Affecting Education, Fifth Edition (Perry A. Zirkel, 2009), like the full volume, is designed as a ready reference, not as legal analysis. It provides a current and concise set of individual case summaries of United States Supreme Court decisions from late 2009 through June 2014. Twenty-nine case summaries are specific to decisions that directly affect the governance, staff, and/or students in K-12 public and private schools. Contents supplement the full volume’s complete canvassing of more than 350 decisions from the start of the 20th century through mid-2009. Categories include church-state relationships in education, student rights and responsibilities, employee rights and responsibilities, discrimination (disability, national origin, race, sex); and special civil right rulings.
