Student and Parent Rights in Public Education.
Emphasizing the necessity for open communication and respect for everyone's rights as the best way to prevent problems at school, this paper offers information and advice to both students and parents (in separate sections) on their rights relating to public education. The topics range from discrimination, due process, and disciplinary measures to religious beliefs, tracked classes, and in-school searches. Both sections are presented in simple format, appropriate for families whose first language is not English. The section addressed to parents includes information about parental involvement in bilingual education. (WD)
