Reservation and Off-Reservation Parent, Teacher and Student Perceptions of Student Rights.
Oaster, Thomas R. F.
Past research has assumed that differences between parents and school officials on the topic of discipline are to be expected. Previous student rights research has also tended to focus on student reactions. To explore differences among students', teachers' and parents' perceptions of student rights, three studies were conducted. The first included elementary and high school teachers, junior and senior high school students, and parents. The second included parents and tenth grade students. The third included Indian and non-Indian parents and reservation and off-reservation teachers. Studies I and II supported the differences in parents' and students' perceptions. Studies I and III produced no parent-teacher differences. Study III produced no differences between Cheyenne (reservation) and non-Cheyenne parents. The age-related progression of attitudes found in Study I tended to agree with previous research. (JAC)
