ED-OM: A Comprehensive Approach to Institutional Justice in Education. Perspective Series No. 7.
Larson, A. William
The author has developed a unique concept of the education ombudsman/woman through continuing research over a period of four years. The concept is being published in its entirety for the first time in this pamphlet. The author discusses the history of the ombudsman/woman concept and its use in higher education, and he explains how such a position might be used in an elementary or secondary district. He specifically links the functions of an ombudsman/woman to a student's right to procedural due process and describes how an ombudsman/woman can enhance a student's procedural due process rights. A 41-item bibliography is included. (JF)
