This chapter, which reports on decisions made by federal and state courts in 1983 concerning the treatment of pupils, notes that for the first time in five years the number of such cases did not increase. Important decisions were handed down regarding student expression and concerning the payment of fees and damages in litigation affecting the placement and treatment of handicapped students. The number of desegregation cases is declining, though a trend is discernible toward "second generation" discriminatnion cases within formerly dual districts where systemwide desegregation has officially been achieved. Among other topics addressed are tuition, placement, the right to education, and discipline in cases involving handicapped and exceptional children; testing, placement, tuition, attendance, and transportation issues in public schools; bilingual and bicultural programs; state involvement with private and parochial schools; athletic association rules and sex discrimination in athletics; students' religious rights and freedom from undue search and seizure; and sanctions for student misconduct.
