School Law
"School boards must exercise their responsibilities in an increasingly
complex legal environment. Resources spent defending lawsuits
against public schools are resources not available for the education
of children. The National School Boards Association offers an array
of resources that help school boards and school attorneys to
understand this legal environment, to keep up to date with new and
emerging legal developments, and to anticipate, prevent, and
overcome legal challenges." Here are some of the things available
on this site: Council of School Attorneys, School Law Publications,
and Legal Clips, which discusses recent developments in Public
School Law.
