Student Rights and Responsibilities: Courts Force Schools To Change. An Education U.S.A. Special Report.
Kleeman, Richard P.
This report examines some of the changes taking place in the schools as a result of a growing recognition by the courts, as well as by parents and educators, that "students are persons." The author discusses recent developments affecting student rights, student responsibilities, and student participation in school governance. Discussed are students' rights to freedom of speech and due process, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, the right of privacy as it affects student records, and the rights of pregnant and married students. Appendixes contain (1) tables showing State action affecting student rights, (2) a copy of the Maryland ACLU bill of Rights, (3) sample local policies, and (4) sample dress codes. (JF)
