This chapter focuses on 1981 cases involving students. The author notes that litigation involving pupils occurred with greater frequency in the areas of handicapped students, student testing, and church-state separation. The most important cases involving students concerned circuit courts of appeal decisions in the handicapped and testing areas. Fewer cases addressed issues concerning student transportation and discipline. Desegregation litigation continued. Cases in this chapter are organized under the headings of handicapped and exceptional children, public school assignment, tuition and transportation, bilingual-bicultural programs, private and parochial schools, school sports, substantive rights of students, sanctions for student misconduct, testing and placement, and desegregation.
