A Legal Memorandum, Nov 1990
Academic decisions related to grouping, grading, and student promotion are discussed in this legal memorandum for secondary school principals. Federal and state court cases involving enrollment, student placement, promotion, grading, graduation, and gender-based classification are examined. Conclusions are that judges tend to respect an educator's reasonable choice and that the purpose of the court system is to examine legality. (50 endnotes) (LMI)
