Making Student Rights and Responsibilities Meaningful.
Larson, A. William
Awareness of, and accord with, the requirements of the law are only a part of the process of making rights and responsibilities meaningful. Sensitive, forward-looking school administrators should seize the day to eliminate a potential cause of future disruptions, with attendant confrontation politics, by establishing procedural due process -- PDP for students -- to give real meaning to the professed commitment to the rights embraced in substantive due process. The full flowering of student rights will lead inevitably to recognition of, and reaction to, student responsibilities. Implied is the concept that students have the right to participate in the development of a code of conduct that spells out both rights and responsibilities. Meaningful student responsibilities will depend upon meaningful educational programs conducted by well qualified teachers under the direction of unquestionably competent administrators. (Author)
