E. Gordon Gee, LAW AND PUBLIC EDUCATION: CASES AND MATERIALS (4TH ed. LEXISNEXIS 2008) (with Philip T.K. Daniel).
This is the latest edition of a venerable casebook in the field. The third edition was published in 1995, so naturally this edition involves substantial rewriting and a great deal of new material. Indeed, reviewing the chapter titles, the reader is reminded of how many distinct issues and different areas of the law are implicated in education, and how these issues continue to evolve, make headlines, and remain prominent in litigation and legislation. For example: affirmative action, searches of students, student rights to political expression, school segregation, educating students with disabilities, financing of public education, and issues relating to religion and public education. Gee and Daniel delve into the developments in all these fields as they bring the book fully up to date.
