The education system operates as a unique pillar of Canadian society, with special rules and unique requirements framed by a plethora of important legal issues. And now, as Canadians turn to the classroom to be educated, so too can their legal advisers turn to the Halsbury's Education title for a clear understanding of the nuanced issues. This important title examines the legal framework within which students in Canada are educated and delineates the rules that govern the rights and obligations of the various participants within the Canadian school system.

Topics covered include:

  • The right and compulsory duty to attend school
  • Residency requirements
  • Duties of school administrators
  • Privacy and access issues
  • Application of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
  • Denominational schools
  • Language of instruction
  • First Nations children
  • Discrimination within the school system
  • Conduct and discipline
  • The constitutional and statutory framework of post-secondary education
