A Review of Cases Pending Before the United States Supreme Court.
Fearen, William
This article, the fifteenth chapter of a book on school law, presents a sketch of education cases for which a hearing has been granted by the Supreme Court or for which petitions are pending. Hearings have been granted to education cases in five areas: church-state relationships, Title IX, book censorship, busing, and P.L. 94-142. Regarding church-state relationships, the Court will examine whether a religious university can lose tax-exempt status for racial discrimination and whether the U.S. government may transfer a building to a religious college. Two Title IX cases concern the law's applicability to employment. In a First Amendment case, the Court will examine a school board's removal of books from a library. Two busing cases revolve around whether a state statute and constitutional amendment prohibiting busing violate equal protection. In the case concerning education of the handicapped, the Court will look at whether a school district must supply an interpreter for a deaf child. Cases that may also be decided by the Court concern search of students, aliens' access to education, expulsion of mentally handicapped students, voluntary prayer, dismissal of staff members, distribution of political materials on campus, sex discrimination in employment, and racial discrimination in university admissions, in the St. Louis schools, and in teacher discharges.
