The Opinions of Inner-City Alternative High School Students Toward Student Rights.
Bryant, Valarie A.
Opinions about students' rights were elicited from students attending an inner-city alternative high school, using a questionnaire. The questions focused on opinions on (1) freedom of speech, (2) due process, (3) suspension and corporal punishment, (4) vague regulations, (5) dress codes, and (6) students' governance of fellow students. Findings, reported by sex and grade level, indicate that students responded to four of the six general questions. In summary, they favored limited freedom of speech, due process for students, school dress codes, and student governance. Analysis of the findings revealed that the majority of the students wanted to learn in a structured, teacher administration oriented school setting. Students additionally wanted to play an active role in the decision making processes and to have a voice in the educational process. Tables of data are appended. (MK)
