Student Rights and the Special Characteristics of the School Environment in American Jurisprudence
Blokhuis, J. C.
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v49 n1 p65-85 Feb 2015
In American jurisprudence, there can be no presumption of constitutional rights coextensive with those of adults for children in any institutional context. This includes public schools, in part because of the legal status of minors and in part because the "special characteristics of the school environment" are predicated on a "custodial and tutelary" relationship between teachers and pupils.
