Written by Derek Black, one of the nation’s foremost experts in education law and policy, and Education Law Association’s 2015 Goldberg Award for Most Significant Publication in Education Law recipient, this third edition casebook develops Education Law through the themes of equality, fairness, and reform. The book focuses on the laws of equal educational opportunity for various disadvantaged student populations, recent reform movements designed to improve education, and the general constitutional rights that extend to all students.

New to the Third Edition:

  • Updates on litigation regarding the fundamental right to education, school funding, and their intersection with COVID-19 issues
  • New cases and analysis on the rights of LGBTQ youth, including Bostock v. Clayton County
  • Department of Education’s new regulatory structure for investigating and resolving sexual harassment claims
  • Two new U.S. Supreme Court special education cases defining the meaning of “free and appropriation public education” and the intersection of Rehabilitation Act with the Individuals with Disabilities in Education Act
  • New cases on student walkouts and protests
  • New U.S. Supreme Court case, Espinoza v. Montana, on vouchers and the free exercise of religion
  • New analysis and updates on the Every Student Succeeds Act
  • New materials on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision striking down mandatory teacher union fees

  • Problems—which can be modified for group exercises, in-class discussion, or out-of-class writing assignments
  • Contextualization and situation of case law in the broader education world—by including edited versions of federal policy guidelines, seminal law review articles, social science studies, and organization reports and studies
  • Careful editing of cases and secondary sources—for ease of reading and comprehension
