by William T. Smale

This book presents a range of perspectives on educational law and policy and is divided into three sections addressing topics related to K-12 education, fundamental freedoms and Charter rights, and contemporary legal issues surrounding higher education. This highly engaging book focuses mainly on Canadian case law and jurisprudence, but also draws on American examples. The contributors examine a comprehensive collection of topics covering a diverse range of issues in educational law while focusing on the moral and ethical dimensions of education, democracy, civil liberties, equality and diversity, social justice, human rights, and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Written in a non-legalistic style, this book is a valuable resource that could be used as a primary or supplementary course text for a senior undergraduate course, teacher education course, or graduate-level education law course.
