In the fourteen years that have passed since the first edition in 1991, so many aspects of Catholic education have changed. The number of religious and priests in Catholic schools have continued to decline, while the laity continue to provide strong, effective leadership and it is they who will largely set the future of Catholic education. This book is divided into seven chapters and begins with a pre-test to allow readers to assess their legal knowledge. The following chapters present topics such as how civil law affects Catholic education; torts; bishops, pastors, principals, and boards; and parents, students, and teachers. The book has been expanded to cover more topics than the first edition.
