Update on Law-Related Education, Vol. 1, No. 2, Fall 1977.
Gross, Norman, Ed.; White, Charles, Ed.
This is the second issue of a new journal designed to keep elementary and secondary school teachers and students up-to-date with developments in law-related education. The focus of this issue is on discipline and due process in the schools. One article discusses recent court cases concerning the rights of students versus the rights of school administrators in discipline cases involving corporal punishment. Another article reviews the disciplinary attitudes and practices of schoolteachers in the 19th century. Other articles suggest how to use court cases as case studies, explain how a day spent in small claims court can show students how judicial decisions are made in various areas of law, present annotated lists of instructional materials about juvenile law, and describe federal sources of funding for law-related curriculum development and teacher education. Two sections entitled Newsclips and Court Briefs contain short reports on topics such as changes in the federal copyright law, a newspaper course on crime and justice, capital punishment, obscenity, and school integration.
