Chapter 13 Review: The Local School Boards and the Contract Liability

Chapter 13 Review: The Local School Boards and the Contract Liability
Chapter 13 covers the local school boards and the contract liability. It defines the reserve clause of the 10th Amendment of the U.S Constitution, which makes education the responsibility of the state. The local school boards are supposed to be created by the state government. A state legislature is created to provide the legal framework for creating the local school boards and the selection of the board officials. The local school boards also agree into various contracts offering varied services which are critical for the planning and continuous progress of the regional school program. In spite of all, there is no authority on the local boards to form contracts. In most situations, the overview of contracts relates to school board responsibilities. In this chapter, the contract law examines the contract actions of the school boards irrespective of the contractual relationships including staff and faculty. Chapter 13 was able to provide significant information relating to the formation of the local school boards and associated contract liability.
This is evidenced by the discussion of the three forms of contracts and the case study which influences the formation of the school boards. For example, the express local board power defines the contracts stated under the laws and administrative frameworks. The chapter also provides detailed discussion of the general codes of contract liability which are critical in understanding the formation of the local school boards.
The points made are clear to me because I was able to observe the different subtopics and laws relating to the contract liability and the creation of the local school boards. For example, Chapter 13 gives a summary of the three types of contract and the associated liability in a clear analysis. Therefore, the structure of the sections and discussion about the topic of local school boards helps the learners to understand the key issues.
