The essential handbook to the educational rights and responsibilities of all parents

At once a legal reference and a hands-on action planner, School Rights is the one book any parent who is concerned about a child's education must have.

School Rights tackles the difficult issues parents face every day, from teacher competence to curriculum revisions. Beginning the moment a child gets on the bus to the moment she leaves school grounds, the book explores the historical and legal background in such key areas as school bus safety, homeschooling, special needs, and facilities, as well as some of the hot topics in education today, such as religion in school, violence, school choice, hazing, and bilingual education.

Using case studies and actual lawsuits, School Rights takes readers through these major issues, explaining every parent's rights and responsibilities. In each category, specific problems are discussed and step-by-step solutions are recommended, from where to begin ("First call the principal") to how to take more action ("Get a group of parents together..".). The authors have consulted leading educational and parents' rights experts across the country to provide readers with the most sensible and easy-to-follow guidelines to some very common problems.
