Student Behavior, Rights and Responsibilities and the Fair Administration of Discipline. Conference Proceedings, April 1-2, 1974.
Moody, Charles D., Sr., Ed.; And Others
These conference proceedings explore three major themes on student rights and responsibilities in public secondary schools, with the stated intent of facilitating progress toward an integrated school environment in which each student is (1) encouraged by a multiracial staff to participate fully, and (2) made to feel welcome as an equal member of the school. The first section examines the fair administration of disciplines and includes such topics as psychological perspectives, a principal's viewpoint, and the politics of administering a student discipline code. Under the general rubric of the present scope of school authority and student rights, the second portion considers various substantive and procedural issues such as changes in special education, student records, fact finding techniques, attendance policies, alternative placement, due process, police-school contacts, juvenile courts, and public schools. Three models focusing on curriculum, school policies, and inservice training are introduced and described in detail in the final portion of this report. The latter portion encompasses the area of educating the school community about school authority and student rights. A comprehensive appendix, that incorporates various legal and federal reference sources on matters of student rights and responsibilities for school, students, and staff, is provided. (Author/AM)
