Emerging Trends in Court Rulings Affecting Daily Operations of the Schools.
Fogarty, James S.
Traditionally, the public schools have been primarily within the domain of local administrators; however, over the past two decades, the courts have become involved more and more in decisions that affect daily operational procedures of the schools. The purpose of this paper is to examine current issues in educational law, including suspension, corporal punishment, search and seizure, teacher rights, school desegregation, and homosexual rights. The analysis is directed to a close examination of individual versus corporate rights in order to establish a "tone" of how the courts have been ruling. This examination allows some predictions to be made about future court actions. Relevant dissenting opinions are noted in the process of establishing the tone. Representative cases have been carefully selected from each area considered. It is not the writer's intent to give indepth coverage of any one topic but, rather, to provide insight based on a comprehensive view. (Author/IRT)
