The Legal Recognition of the Right to Education: A Growing Clamor or a Fading Whisper.
Roemer, Eleanor K.
The extent to which there is a favorable view of a child's right to education in United States courts is examined. Important United States Supreme Court cases regarding segregated school systems, unequal allocation of state financial resources for education, and civil rights of students are reviewed to reveal the extent to which a legal recognition of a child's right to education is emerging. The trend observed in this study is that the federal judiciary is tending toward the attitude that this problem is of individual state, not federal, concern. (JD)
