Canadian educators have a real need to understand the legal dimensions of the classrooms in which they operate. A major aspect of educational administration is dealing with a wide range of conflicts, and in some cases, the law is called upon to resolve them.

Author and education professor Jerome G. Delaney tackles some thorny questions and provides educators with a comprehensive overview of the legal topics they may face in their day-to-day jobs. This knowledge will empower teachers and administrators to be more effective in their roles. Topics include the implications of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms for educators, provincial education acts, teacher collective agreements, due process, teacher liability and negligence, corporal punishment, sexual assault, duty to report, the Youth Criminal Justice Act, and copyright law.
