Legal Problems of Today's Teacher Educators.
Young, D. Parker
There have been many recent developments concerning academic freedom and responsibility. The latter is especially important because, with the rediscovery of the 1871 Civil Rights Act, individuals and institutions can be sued for money. As regards teacher preparation programs in particular, there are four critical times for decisions which could result in court action against those who make the decision: (a) when the candidate applies for admission to the teacher education program, (b) when the student applies for his student teaching assignment, (c) when a decision is made about whether or not the student will be allowed to continue in the program, and (d) when a decision is made regarding a recommendation for a teacher's certificate. The latter has become especially important when involving moral conduct. Another important development has been the so-called Buckley Amendment which applies to any institution receiving federal support in any form and which outlines the rights of all college students.
