Abstract

Getting to grips with law and policy can be daunting for beginning and established teachers alike. Law and Ethics for Australian Teachers provides an overview of the professional, legal and ethical issues teachers may encounter in the classroom and the broader school environment. This book breaks down the relevant case law, as well as state and territory legislation and policy, in an accessible way to help readers navigate these complex issues. It covers topics including duty of care and mandatory reporting, work health and safety issues, family court orders and parenting plans, suspensions and exclusions, and criminal law issues. Each chapter features case studies, definitions of key terms, detailed scenarios and end-of-chapter questions to help readers understand a wide range of professional issues. Written by a team of authors with both teaching and legal expertise, Law and Ethics for Australian Teachers is an essential resource for pre- and in-service teachers.
