Student Rights, Decisionmaking, and the Law. Report No. 10
Tice, Terrence N.
The issue of student rights and the law is presented in this essay and bibliography. Included are discussion of student activism and the courts, law and morality, the new era of student activism, legal, institutional, and moral rights, and institutional administration and the law. Also considered are constitutional questions raised by student right's claims that take into account the unique nature of the bond between students and the academy and the courts' rulings in this regard. A participatory approach to campus decisionmaking is recommended, with both formal and informal mechanisms available that are built on specific rather than vague or overly generalized criteria. The bibliography contains 327 items along with subject, author, and case indexes and, thus, provides a review of the literature from the early 1960s through 1976. (Author/JMF)
