Law & Education: Advanced School Law

B658 is taught by Richardson

This course analyzes current school legal issues from a district-level perspective. School leaders and policy makers need an in-depth understanding of several legal and ethical issues that impact schools. The Prerequisite for this course is: Legal Perspectives in Education (B658 Education Law/A608) or equivalent with consent from instructor. In Legal Perspectives in Education (B658 Education Law/A608), students explore legal issues from a building-level perspective. Specifically within A608, students discussed legal scenarios focused on teachers and principals. Advanced School Law (B658 Education Law/A615) goes beyond Legal Perspectives in Education to examine other complex school legal issues at the district-level, including public employment law, evaluation and other issues that affect superintendents and other district-level leaders.. This is a School of Education course which will be taught entirely online. Students are responsible for ascertaining applicable rules of relevant jurisdictions for bar exams/admission. Some jurisdictions limit the number of online hours. The course also qualifies as one of the four School of Education cross-listed courses that is required for the Minor in Education Policy (see (link)). Please contact the Student Affairs office if you plan to pursue the Minor in Education Policy and Janet Decker for further information about the course.

Please note: This class meets according to School of Education regulations and calendar.
