Tatel, David; Brannan, Patricia A.
Liaison Bulletin, v18 n3 Feb 1992
This bulletin reviews the 1990-91 term of the U.S. Supreme Court in terms of its impact on public schools, finding that the Court tended to decline to review decisions by lower courts that gave school districts discretion to resolve questions of student and employee rights. Court opinions that were handed down are discussed, and the impact of cases that the Court declined to review is also discussed. Court opinions are organized into five subject areas: desegregation, voting rights and political activity, employment and labor, student rights, and special education. (JDD)
