There was little change in the directions of litigation concerning pupils in 1978. As a result of federal statutes requiring the education of handicapped students, the courts have begun to wrestle with some very complex problems concerning the limitations of the federal law and the state legislation passed to comply with the federal legislation. Athletic association requirements seemed to come under heavier attack than before, with the courts balancing their reluctance to interfere with the operation of the rules against their impatience with the, at times, seemingly wooden way these rules are applied. There were some noteworthy cases upholding the power of school officials to search and seize materials from students under certain circumstances. Desegregation cases continued to fill the dockets of the courts, with many issues being subjected to relitigation in the light of "Dayton Board of Education v. Brinkman." (Author/IRT)
