Cases arguing about the use of school facilities by religious groups continued to increase in number in 1990; however cases involving home instruction and student searches declined. In the school desegregation section, the financing of desegregation plans occupied the attention in most cases. Increasingly, desegregation cases focus less on developing remedies and more on the question of which party pays for them. Cases are discussed under the following sections: (1) public school assignment, tuition, transportation, home instruction, and compulsory attendance; (2) private and parochial schools; (3) substantive rights of students, including search and seizure, and First Amendment religious and freedom of expression rights; (4) sanctions for student misconduct, including suspensions, expulsions, and corporal punishment; and (5) desegregation, including cross-district remedies, desegregation plan oversight, and state court cases.
