This chapter summarizes recent state supreme court and federal court decisions involving the rights of school pupils. The cases discussed are generally limited to those decided during 1975 and reported in the General Digest as of March 1976. In his discussion, the author attempts to integrate related cases and to illuminate any unifying legal principles that underlie the decisions relevant to each specific subtopic involving school pupils. Separate sections of the article focus in turn on cases involving exceptional students, extracurricular activities, tuition and school assignment, religious and conscientious beliefs of parents and pupils, students' substantive rights, sanctions for student misconduct, and school desegregation.
