Teachers in trouble : an exploration of the normative character of teaching by Stuart Piddocke( )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 2,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors of this book examine how teacher conduct is monitored and what types of misconduct can produce 'social dramas'. Boards of reference have been established to arbitrate disputes between school boards and teachers who are dismissed. Drawing on the decisions of these boards of reference across Canada, the authors identify normative issues and propose a classification scheme for contentious behaviours." "Teachers in Trouble poses fundamental questions about the role of teachers in society. It is an invaluable guide for teachers and professional organizations, education administrators, and members of the community who are concerned about ethics in our schools."--Résumé de l'éditeur
The courts, the Charter and the schools : the impact of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms on educational policy and practice, 1982-2007 by Michael E Manley-Casimir( )

11 editions published between 1910 and 2019 in English and held by 1,153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The adoption of the Canadian Constitution Act in 1982, with its embedded Charter of Rights and Freedoms, ushered in an era of unprecedented judicial influence on Canada's public policy. The Courts, the Charter, and the Schools examines how the Constitution Act has affected educational policy during the first twenty-five years of the Charter by analyzing landmark rulings handed down from appellate courts and the Supreme Court.The contributors consider the influence that Charter cases have had on educational policies and practices by discussing cases involving fundamental freedoms, legal rights, equality rights, and minority language rights. Demonstrating why and how the Charter was invoked, interpreted, and applied in each of these cases, this volume also highlights the resulting consequences for Canada's public schools. An illuminating collection of essays by prominent legal scholars and educational commentators, The Courts, the Charter, and the Schools is a significant contribution to the study of educational law and policy in Canada

Administrative discretion in education by Michael; Moffat, Alesha D Manley-Casimir( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every day, discretion shapes the decisions that run our schools, colleges, and universities. Every day, it alters the lives and futures of students, educators, and administrators. It's hard to overstate the impact of discretion on the incidents and issues that arise in every educational institution. Discretion affects disciplinary actions, school climate and safety, student engagement, and the health and well-being of everyone in a classroom or on a campus. What is involved in the exercise of discretion by educational administrators? This collection of papers furthers research into this important question. It presents seminal work from scholars and graduate students, as well as path-breaking analyses from other disciplines. An understanding of how discretion works--the "calculus" that bridges the rational world of empirical observation and the normative world of ethics--can lead to better decision making in our educational institutions, and a clearer perspective on how to achieve just and effective outcomes

Special children and the Charter : constitutional implications for the legal right to an appropriate education : a report submitted to the Human Rights Law Fund, Department of Justice by Michael E Manley-Casimir( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1982 Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees equal protection and equal benefit of the law to all individuals without discrimination "and, in particular, without discrimination based on ... mental or physical handicap." This report identifies and clarifies policy-making questions and issues that are arising as educators translate the law into viable policies and programs for handicapped children. The report is divided into the following sections: (1) an overview of legislative and judicial trends in accommodating handicapped children's right to an appropriate education; (2) a survey of public interest group responses to current provincial legislative policies and programs for handicapped children (including representative examples of how these individuals and groups perceive current legislative initiatives); (3) an overview of recent United States constitutional and legislative developments in handicapped education and a discussion of Canadian legal trends in light of the American experience; and (4) possible applications and implications of the Charter's equality provisions that illustrate the meaning of equal benefit for handicapped children in education. Appendices include letters to ministers of education, special interest/advocacy groups, and human rights commissions (used in the research reported in section 2); a list of 24 references; and a table of 17 cases.

The Exercise of Administrative Discretion in Secondary School Discipline Grounded Hypotheses by Michael E Manley-Casimir( )

3 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study used ethnographic research methods to generate hypotheses about the exercise of administrative discretion on secondary school discipline. The study, an organizational case study, investigated the exercise of discretion by the school disciplinarians in Integrated High in Chicago. Participant-observation, focused interviews, and administrative statistics yielded the data. Simple statistical analysis of the quantitative data yielded three hypotheses about the pattern of selective enforcement--(1) the more prominent the discipline administrator's concern with order-maintenance (control), the greater the likelihood students will be suspended; (2) the more prominent the discipline administrator's concern with individual treatment, the greater the likelihood students will be treated leniently and not suspended; and (3) boys, posing as they seem to do a greater threat to the security and good order of the school, will be suspended systematically more frequently than girls. Analysis of quantitative data yielded rudimentary analogue models of the exercise of discretion by each administrator. Each model consists of a set of hypotheses stated verbally and diagrammatically. All hypotheses are grounded in data. (Author/IRT)
The Charter, Educational Administration and U.S. Case Law Contracting Legal Norms and Traditions by Pat Pistula( Book )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The historical, political, and legal evolution of Canada and its traditions has differed from that of the United States' uncritical adoption of U.S. case law. Canada's 1982 Charter, the counterpart of the United States Bill of Rights, is discussed. This paper examines the fundamental differences between Canadian and U.S. value patterns and legal norms; the argument is then tested by applying discussion conclusions to two areas of school law--due process and student rights. Whereas the United States was conceived in a revolution against an authoritarian and paternalistic government, Canada was formed out of a compromise among four colonies, based on common interest in building a railway and willingness to remain under imperial rule for another 100 years. Canadian political culture espouses traditional values and an "elite accommodation" governance style in which policymaking and political leadership are delegated to elites representing major subcultural groups. The greater respect for authority and lesser concern for equality (compared to the United States egalitarian ethos) means that Canadians have not used the courts to the same extent. Because basic civil rights have not been entrenched in a constitution, this legal tradition is weaker than in the United States. The elite accommodation philosophy, which emphasizes deference to school authorities and the need for order, carries over to schools. Canadian courts have granted broad powers to school authorities, both to make and enforce rules based on "in loco parentis" and "parens patriae." As a result, the Canadian school administrator has traditionally counted on a predictable socio-legal environment posing few challenges on substantive educational grounds. Specific due process and student rights applications are discussed, comparing Canadian and U.S. approaches. Implications for administrative practice are also discussed. Included are 58 legal references. (MLH)
