Student Press Rights: Struggles in Scholastic Journalism.
The purpose of this monograph is to acquaint journalism teachers, faculty advisers to student newspapers, administrators, and students with the court cases and decisions which have been made concerning student publications and underground newspapers. The chapters in the book include "Students' Rights: Background," which discusses the impact of the First Amendment on the student press and stresses the importance of free expression for high school students; "Students' Rights: Development," which examines the effect of the "Tinker" decision in establishing at what point student expression may be curtailed if school officials forecast a disruption of educational activities; "Students' Rights: Particular Circumstances," which presents cases exploring students' rights of expression on and off campus grounds; "Students' Rights: Administrative Regulations Allowed by Courts," which considers the powers of school administrators in dealing with student expression and cites several cases in which the courts upheld the administrators; and "Students' Rights: Additional Matters" which discusses cases concerned with the advertising and sales of student publications, the reinstatement of students following litigation, and the still undefined role of the publications adviser.
