Emerging Rights of Students: The Minnesota Model for a Student Bill of Rights.
National School Public Relations Association, Arlington, VA.; Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul.
This booklet presents a comprehensive set of guidelines intended to assist local school boards, administrators, and teachers in establishing their own policies governing the rights and responsibilities of students. The primary objectives of the model are to insure policies that facilitate consistent treatment of all students, the "fairness" or "reasonableness" required by the U.S. Constitution, an atmosphere of open communication and clearly understood rules, and behavior that enables both school staff and students to develop to their fullest potential. Although the guidelines were developed specifically for Minnesota schools, the laws and educational practices they reflect are generally applicable in other States as well. Topics covered by the guidelines include age of majority; alcohol, drug abuse, and venereal diseases; appearance; assembly and meetings; attendance; freedom of expression; corporal punishment; handicapped students; locker and personal searches; marriage, pregnancy, and parenthood; student records; use of tobacco; and suspension, expulsion, and exclusion.
