Rights and Freedoms of Public School Students: Directions from the 1960s. ERIC/CEM State-of-the-Knowledge Series, Number Nine.
This monograph identifies the rights and freedoms of public school students at the secondary and elementary levels, and discusses the legal limitations or modifications that school officials can place on those rights and freedoms. For this paper, the reviewer investigated published and unpublished literature and the pertinent judicial decisions rendered by State and Federal courts between 1960 and 1970. The reviewer notes firm trends in decisions on historical constitutional freedoms such as freedom of association, freedom of religion, and rights to procedural due process. There is no discernible pattern in other areas such as freedom of expression, freedom of dress and appearance, and freedom to learn. (Author/JF)
