Methods of Discipline: What Is Allowed? A Legal Memorandum.
Nolte, M. Chester
This publication briefly discusses the legal status of various methods of school discipline and related efforts to control the behavior of elementary and secondary school students. Specific topics examined include corporal punishment, suspension, expulsion, exclusion from extracurricular activities, detention, truancy, verbal correction, a variety of less common disciplinary measures, and the relationship of school discipline and the responsibility of school officials to civil justice. Usually the discussion of these topics consists mainly of brief quotations taken directly from court opinions in relevant cases. (Author/JG)
