A teacher could not instruct students in how to build explosives for use in Federal crimes: It shall be unlawful for any person to teach or demonstrate the making or use of an explosive, a destructive device, or a weapon of mass destruction [...] with the intent that the teaching, demonstration, or information be used for, or in furtherance of, an activity ...

In 1925 Tennessee passed the Butler Act, which prohibited the teaching of evolution in public schools, more specifically the teaching that "mankind was descended from a lower type". This law was challenged in the famous Scopes Trial, more formally The State of Tennessee v. John Thomas Scopes, often known as the 'Monkey Trial". Scopes was ...

If Tratatoria has anti-discrimination laws, or provisions in its constitution forbidding discrimination, the Minister's actions might be illegal under them. But if it does not, or if it does not enforce whatever laws it may have, there is no international authority that can enforce any rule against discrimination. People and groups in other countries could ...

Just from recent news I know that Critical Race Theory Critical race theory (CRT) is a body of legal scholarship and an academic movement of US civil-rights scholars and activists who seek to critically examine the intersection of race and U.S. law and to challenge mainstream American liberal approaches to racial justice.1​2[4] CRT examines social, cultural,...

Given your reference to "consumer court", I assume this is in India, so you are also concerned with the Consumer Protection Act. Under the act, your complain would have to be about one of a number of things, including most likely (iii) the services hired or availed of or agreed to be hired or availed of by him suffer from deficiency in any ...

It is legal, unless the laws of that state say otherwise. Governments are allowed to charge different tuitions to residents vs. non-residents. They can also require proof of residence (not just your say-so). Being physically present in a state for a couple of years is not proof of being a resident. That doesn't mean that the interrogation that you are ...

The state has wide discretion on what to require that a school teach to children, particularly in the K-12 grade range. There is little case law where a parent or private school has challenged such requirements. However, for a state to forbid that certain things be taught would probably run into a first amendment problem, because the school has free speech ...

It is possible: McCleary v. Washington is an example. Ground zero was the 2012 ruling McCleary v. State, 173 Wn.2d 477, which then took 6 years of further scuffling to resolve. That opinion is full of useful legal tidbits, but the argument boils down to a constitutional obligation (art. IX) for the state to provide an education. If your state has no ...

The relationship between a school board and the other state officials is purely a matter of state law. Generally speaking, a state can impose generally applicable regulations that govern public school districts, and to a lesser extent, so can the federal government. Whether this particular remedy is available in Florida would depend upon the relevant ...

There is no blanket international law against all forms of discrimination, so there is no way to make an official determination. It might be possible to do so in a specific case for a particular kind of discrimination, so you have to find what treaties Tratatoria has entered into. The International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial ...

This question concerns Dutch law. Specifically, the Wet op het hoger onderwijs en wetenschappelijk onderzoek ("WHW") is applicable, as well as further rules seth forth by the Board of your university.

Parents Can't Legally do That To count as "homeschooling in the state of washington it must consist of a parent (or parents) instructing his or her own children.

RCW 28A.225.010 establishes a system of compulsory public education for most students from the ages of 8 to 18. It allows exceptions for students receiving "home-based instruction," but that exception only applies to students whose instruction is "provided by a parent." Because the parents are paying for a teacher rather than providing ...

To my knowledge, using protected post nominal letters that are related to a professional organization, like M.D. or P.Eng. are enforced by state/provincial organizations that can take legal action against anyone using that title improperly. But with BA, BS, BBA, or others there is no organization that protects these, so what are the legal ramifications here? ...

As a practical matter, class action litigation is unlikely to provide an answer fast enough for it to provide a meaningful remedy for the original litigants before the situation changes or their students age out. Litigation can be viable for a single singled out kid with a special ed need or who is persecuted for discriminatory reasons, but even then it is a ...

If you're in the USA, this almost certainly falls under fair use, or if you are in another jurisdiction, it almost certainly falls under an analogous exception for educational use. The fact that the excerpt is short contributes to this conclusion. You can also avoid having to rely even on these exceptions by choosing sources that are in the public domain. ...

Why would this be a concern? The adults have some duty in an elementary school setting to monitor the children in the restroom in any case. Separate restrooms are an employee perk, not a liability driven decision.

If so, could a person auditing a class simply for the sake of learning legally take classes without having to pay tuition? No, the university is not obligated to let them do so. The question is very broad because "taking a class" involves many things, almost none of which have anything to do with intellectual property, but I'll try to summarize. &...

An attorney who represents a parent client with respect to an IEP may consent to it on behalf of the client. As Trish notes, the attorney should ethically confer with the client and obtain client approval before doing so. But the attorney has authority to bind the parent client if the attorney is representing the client with respect to the IEP.

At the time of writing, students studying in Government Aided schools are not eligible for the 7.5% percent reservation in NEET exams. Petitions have been filed in courts challenging this.

In the US this might well fall under fair use, depending on the exact details. Whether something is fair use or not always depends on the facts, and no one factor is final. That this is being used for an educational purpose would tilt toward fair use. If the amount of any one source used is small compared to the full size of the source that would also help, ...

If you are interested in California law about education and labor unions, this page lists numerous laws relevant to public jobs and labor unions, the first entry being about collective bargaining and public schools.

Public schools in the US, as governmental agencies, share a measure of sovereign immunity. It is generally very hard to sue a public school or school district over the quality of its education unless there is a specific mandate in a state (o rarely) federal statute mandating particular aspects, such as the "No Child Left Behind" law. Otherwise the ...

It is legal. What would be illegal is for a public school to promote or inhibit a religion. You can teach all sorts of facts that touch on religion (millennia of Western history) and you can e.g. survey the major religions of the worlds as a cultural phenomenon. You can use circumlocutions or proper names. It's not illegal to confess to having personal ...

This is a difficult question that does not have a clear answer. There is a duty to report suspected child abuse or neglect, but suicidal tendencies don't necessarily flow from either of these causes. There are also duties of a teacher in loco parentis as the person temporarily having custody of a child from which one could argue that this duty arises, as ...

Commonwealth Public Schools The Commonwealth Privacy Act 1988 does not apply to state and territory governments including public education.

Unless specifically prohibited by law, schools can teach specific viewpoints.

Yes, it’s possible Education is compulsory in Texas for children between the ages of 6 and 18 (unless they have a high school diploma) subject to a number of exemptions that don’t seem applicable. This can be met by: attending a public school - which has the problem you identified, attending a private school - some of these may be offering distance ...
