What Every Teacher Should Know about Student Rights.
This booklet reviews twelve areas in which, in light of recent court cases, teachers should be made aware of changes in the status of student rights. These areas include (a) the right to an education, (b) due process, (c) "in loco parentis," (d) personal appearance, (e) marriage, (f) corporal punishment, (g) grades and diplomas, (h) punishment for off-campus activity, (i) law enforcement, (j) discrimination, (k) school records, and (l) freedom of expression. Two distinctions have been made in this list between those areas in which state courts have the ultimate decision and those which reach the federal level. The areas which deal with more fundamental rights such as the right to an education, due process, and freedom of expression fall under national jurisdiction. Personal appearance, marriage, and law enforcement are examples of areas that are left up to the states. Extensive bibliographies and a list of other National Education Association materials that pertain to student rights are included. (MK)
