Schooling and the Rights of Children. The National Society for the Study of Education Series on Contemporary Educational Issues.
Haubrich, Vernon F., Ed.; Apple, Michael W., Ed.
This book consists of eight articles that grew out of a seminar and study group on "School and the Rights of Children," held at the University of Wisconsin, Madison during the spring of 1973. The book is intended to establish a healthy perspective on the extension of the rights and liberties of children in the public schools. The collective view of the authors is that a process of conflict resolution is essential to avoid continued battle over the issue of students rights versus the prerogatives of educational institutions. The individual articles include the following: "Morality, Science, and the Use of the Child in History,""Student Rights and the Social Context of Schooling,""Social-Psychological Concepts and the Rights of Children,""Student Rights and the Misuse of Psychological Knowledge and Language,""The Nature of Claims for Student Rights,""Legal Precedents in Student Rights Cases,""Trends, Conflicts, and Implications in Student Rights," and "Toward Increasing the Potency of Student Rights Claims: Advocacy-Oriented Policy Recommendations." The appendix contains a model High School Student Bill of Rights adopted by the Madison (Wisconsin) Public Schools. (JG)
