Product description

Legal Education and Risk Management for Educators in Malaysia highlights the importance of educators being literate on the laws of education and other substantive laws which govern the operation of the educational settings. These laws directly or indirectly impinge upon educators’ professional duties and responsibilities. Thus, educators have to exercise due diligence in attending to the daily affairs of the students and the schools they represent by delivering sound and legally defensible decisions in the course of their duty. The purpose of this book is to provide comprehensive and practical knowledge regarding legal issues that impact educators in general. The book also provides guides connected to major issues and discusses the risk management aspects to be reckoned in the operation of the school. It also serves as a basic text and resource material for educators to use in education law courses for pre-service and in-service teacher training programmes, educational administrators, policy-makers, teachers and lecturers, students and parents and the general public at large. Educators, particularly, in teachers’ training institutions, schools, colleges and universities would gain valuable knowledge as to how to discharge their duties with due diligence within the framework of the nation’s laws, thus providing the much needed guidance for educators to ensure a safe and healthy school to minimise legal risks.
