A Sensible Assessment of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
Dolce, Carl J.
This report discusses factors that lead to wide disagreement among educators about proper definitions of student rights and responsibilities. These factors include (1) the particular era in which a definition is formulated, (2) the role perspectives, (3) the values held, (4) the anticipated consequences, and (5) the implicit concepts held concerning the nature of education. The author calls for an expansion of student rights balanced against institutional (societal) needs. He argues that students should have the rights to (1) free expression of their religious, political, and/or philosophical beliefs, (2) wide latitude in personal dress and appearance, and (3) due process.
