Student Rights and School Discipline: Bibliography.
Hutchinson, Myra, Ed.
It is the purpose of this bibliography to provide educators with ready access to resources that will assist them in the task of evaluating the total setting in their individual schools and that will suggest alternatives to present practices. The materials have been divided into three major categories dealing with the disciplinary setting of the school, racial, cultural and other factors which affect that setting, and students' rights within the educational system. This categorization is intended to facilitate usage by grouping similar types of materials together but it is hoped that users will keep in mind the close interrelationships that exist among all these factors. The materials cited here cover a time period from 1968 to the present, thus including developments resulting from the landmark Tinker case, the early stages of recognition of students' constitutional rights within the educational setting. Users should evaluate materials with the awareness that statements made in earlier materials may be affected or outdated by recent court decisions and legal developments. Understanding of two recent significant cases (Goss v. Lopez; Wood v. Strickland -- Section III.A.1 & 2) may prove helpful in evaluating materials. (Author)
