Student Rights and Responsibilities Revisited: Current Trends in School Policies and Programs.
Graul, Donald; Jones, J. William
Because recent legislation and court decisions have expanded the rights of all students, schools of the 70s must educate them about the responsibilities that go with these newly recognized rights. A nationwide survey indicates that many schools have established grievance procedures based on open communication and clearly stated policies. And many have taken steps to ensure due process in suspension and expulsion and to safeguard confidentiality of student records. The report looks at the old issues of student government, the student press, and student discipline. The implications of Title IX and the legal responsibility of school board members for ensuring student rights are described. Useful as a handbook of dissemination techniques, the report is illustrated with samples from the content and graphics of student rights codes. (Author/MLF)
