The Principal, the Student, and the Law: A Prosecuting Attorney's View.
Patterson, L. Brooks
The relationship between a school principal and the student, and the functions and responsibilities of each, are being controlled and dictated by the continuing involvement of the courts. Many complex and confusing legal questions have arisen because of this judicial intervention. Issues discussed include school violence and vandalism, student rights, due process, and the distinction between substantive due process and procedural due process. Guidelines are offered administrators in the form of a handbook and a compilation of ideas to help deal with a variety of school problems, with the legislature, and with community apathy.
