Ideally suited as a supplement in a law and society or constitutional law course or as a text for an advanced seminar, Education Law Stories provides an enriched understanding of a dozen leading education-related cases, focusing on how the litigation was shaped by lawyers, judges, and social factors, and why the cases have attained landmark status. In this book, a group of prominent education and constitutional law scholars have brought to life twelve of the most interesting cases ever litigated, a number of which are regularly taught in basic law school courses. Both cases in higher education settings and school law are included, and they make for fascinating reading. The volume is edited by Michael A. Olivas and Ronna G. Schneider and chapter authors include Robert O'Neil, Erwin Chemerinsky, Laura Rothstein, Wendy Parker, Rachel Moran, and many other leaders in the field. Cases have been selected to provide a historical sampling of different times and important issues, including religion (Aguillard and Santa Fe ISD), finance (Rodriguez and Southworth), race (Grutter, Brown, Lau), gender (VMI), and disabilities (Southeastern Community College), among others. The volume can serve as an assigned text for courses in law schools or colleges of education. Because education is such a fundamental social activity, these cases run deep and are fascinating proxies for the important themes of our times.
