From schoolhouse to courthouse: the judiciary's role in American education

by Joshua M. Dunn. Brookings Institution. 2009.
275 pages.

Put out by an education-policy think tank, this book serves as a survey of education-focused litigation from the past 30 years. It is divided into three parts. The first provides context and helps to frame the discussions included in the book. The other two look at both issues that are generally considered to be settled (desegregation, school finance, special ed) and those that are still in contention (religion, discipline, and No Child Left Behind).
