The Law of Suspension and Expulsion: An Examination of the Substantive Issues in Controlling Student Conduct. NOLPE Second Monograph Series, Number Seven. ERIC/CEM State-of-the-Knowledge Series, Number Thirty-Two.
Phay, Robert E.
Student protest and misconduct have frequently resulted in the suspension or expulsion of a student. This monograph examines the school's authority to suspend or expel a student, with the purpose of determining when such an action is permissible and when it is prohibited because it infringes on a student's constitutional and, sometimes, statutory rights. The procedural issues that arise when the school has decided to remove a student are not included. Issues discussed include demonstrations, publications and underground newspapers, weapons on school grounds, school property damage, personal appearance, student marital and/or parental status, and out-of-school conduct.
