Aspects of education law provides a comprehensive description and analysis of the laws that currently inform, prescribe and influence the activities of educators and education managers, whether on the sports fields or in the boardroom, at the blackboard or behind a desk.
This fifth edition of Aspects of education law places emphasis on the legal aspects that pertain to learner misconduct in South African schools, with extended chapters on human rights and school governance, and has been thoroughly updated in terms of new legislation and case law. It includes discussions of the position of the child as legal subject, the educator’s duty of care and the administrative aspects of school management.
Aspects of education law has become an essential resource for educators, lawyers, members of governing boards and parents, and all of those who are interested in ensuring high-quality schooling in South Africa. Previous editions have been hailed as being “among the highest in the international community” and “a must for … scholars throughout the world with an interest in comparative education law” by American academics.
[A] superb blend of theory and practice … [and] … a comprehensive compilation of all of the relevant statutes, regulations, and law cases that apply to education. Both education and law practitioners will find the case studies … to be invaluable in assisting them to recognize, respond to, and resolve legal issues in schools. This book should become a standard work in training education practitioners and should be on the shelf of every education and legal professional in South Africa.
