4-0 out of 5 stars Good book for uneducated teachers with regards to law
With all the horror stories we hear about teachers being fired and sued over decesions they made about punishment and what to teach and how to teach, this book is a gold mine. It provides information on just about any topic a teach may encounter. Not only does it have great information, it is also written with few "legal trade" words. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource, but guidance was helpful
Teachers and the Law (6th Edition) was the primary text used for my National-Louis University (Wheeling, IL) School Law course. Although the text implies that only information regarding teachers will be discussed, Fischer actually covers legal issues that deal with many levels of educational law including student cases, administrator cases, and even cases that don't involve teachers at all, but loosely relate to educational law in general.
4-0 out of 5 stars Teachers and the Law
I received the book in good shape.The cover looked next to new and there were very little marks or highlights in the text.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for Teachers
Case law, unless done perhaps by the likes of John Grissam, is not page turning material.However, the authors have done an incredible job of putting very pressing and often complex areas into an accessible and engaging book.Written in an easy to use question and answer format, the updated book touches on education legal issues ranging from free speech, to students with disabilities, to internet issues.While of great use for educator (or educators to be), the book could also easily be adapted for classroom use, either as a debate or research starter.Worth every penny of its price. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quality
The book arrived ina timely fashion and I would definitely buy my textbooks through Amazon again

5-0 out of 5 stars Almost Painless Public School Law
This Sixth Edition of American Public School Law is a comprehensive treatment of noteworthy public school case law that also serves to outline the history of our country. It's user friendly, while not lowering the bar for comprehension. Legal lingo is left intact, but translations are offered for those of us who are reading it for School Law classes, as opposed to Law School classes. There's a useful glossary, and a handy index for locating specific topics, and the cases that illustrate them. This is a book you'll want to keep.

5-0 out of 5 stars Public School Court Cases
I ordered the book for my graduate class. It contains landmark court cases and rulings dealing with public school issues in all U.S. states. It is a great source for public school administrators and basically an easy read for those who have never had a law class.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good solid book for both lawyers and educators.
This book is a must-have for educators. Since the push for inclusion means many students with disabilities are entering regular schools and classrooms with their peers, it is of great worth that the regular teacher as well as the special education teachers know the background of the laws that pertainto these students with diverse needs. It would be beneficial to bothstudents, teachers, and parents to know and understand how the laws areapplied in court, what an IEP is, what is expected of the teachers, andwhat can be expected of the students. I have the other major law books ondisability laws, but this one is more geared toward other participants inthe process besides lawyers. It is very readable and very understandablewithout having to go to law school to get a background in law first. Isuggest this or rather recommend this to my friends and students who areinterested in working with those with disabilities in regular schoolsettings.

2-0 out of 5 stars I think there are better books to use
This book is not for the person just getting an intiation into school law.It is too condense and only gives blurbs of the verdicts in each case by quoting the appellate and US supreme court judges which are oft times convoluted, the author leaves out an indepth explanation of the nuts and bolts.I refer to this book as the Reader's Digest version of school law.Also, the print is microscopic which is really hard on the eyes.

3-0 out of 5 stars How good can it be?
...The book is well-written and contains important informationrelevant to school personnel, but it does not come in a titanium coverwith gold leaf pages.Can a student get a break?END

This is a great book for learning how to develop an educational plan for your child.It teaches you many skills you'll need to give your child the best chance to succeed in school.
5-0 out of 5 stars Advocating for your child
As a parent of a child with a disability, adding the word "advocate" to the many other hats that I have to wear is not appealing.However, reading this book gave me a clear path to follow in this endeavor.It is filled with practical advice that is simple to implement.It is easy to read.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is THE book to read if you are Law School bound
I wasted my money on other books. The biggest waste of money was Law School Confidential. By Law in a Nutshell and don't waste your money on other books. It was terrific! It was even humorous.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy It, Borrow It, Just Get It.
The single best book that I have found which really does explain the study and practice of law, hence the title.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful, not a must have
It is worth reading, but I believe that it should be read in addition to a couple of other books to prepare mentally for law school.The two others I went through are; How to succeed in law school (munneke) and The complete Law School Companion (deaver). ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE
If you are an educator, you must own this book, for the good of your students, and your own legal protection.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not as helpful as I thought
I bought this book thinking it would help me to understand what the schools know, only to find out that the Department of Education has not yet released the regulations. My district now tells me these federal regulations are what our state uses to make determinations on their own regulations. So while this book does give information about the law (and as another reviewer stated, it can be found on the Internet for free), it does not directly address federal or state regulations, since they have not yet been created. So, I found the book only marginally helpful, thus two stars for a good effort.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book.
I whole heartedly agree with the other review.This is an excellent book, because it shows what the OLD law was like vs the new law.This has helped me tremendously.Normal parents can read this and understand...you do not need a law degree to "get it."It is very user friendly. I also agree that From Emotions To Advocacy is a MUST have book for any parent in the special education system.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great reference for every educator and lawyer in education.
If I could have given this book 4 and a half stars I would have done so. The only complaint that I have about this tome is that many of the court cases that I am interested in are not printed in part or entirety in this book. I will have to go to the law library to get the rest of the information that I need. This book was not in my law classes, but rather in a class for school administrators. I am writing on and very interested in the legal history of education, and this was a great find for me. Not only does it give pertinent information about all educational law, but the specific references and legal issues are there for gender and race discrimination in schools, busing, special education, etc. Any teacher, researcher, or lawyer in this field cannot just pick up a book that is only on their area such as special education, because the full information is not there nor does it make sense out of context of legal history. In order to understand the reason why Congress and courts saw the need to coin a new law (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) rather than rely upon previous ammendments to other laws such as the Civil Rights Act and other education acts in the 1960's it is vital that the reader know the history and how those ammendments failed to guarantee educational rights for those with disabilities. This book is a vital reference that provides this information, the legal history, and it is well worth the money spent on it. Karen Sadler, Science Education, University of Pittsburgh ... Read more
