Education law refers to the statutes, regulations, cases, and policies governing education and the resolution of disputes in educational institutions. These make up a vast body of laws regulating daily school operations and dispute resolution on issues from academic freedom to property tax challenges, student discipline to teacher contracts, and school lunch programs to tort liability. Schools are microcosms of the broader society, so nearly every legal issue in the broader society may also be found in schools. The citations included in this entry provide a useful overview of some of the most significant issues in education law and help the user to find further information on these and other issues of interest in education law.
