From "Tinker" to "TLO": Are Civil Rights for Students Flunking in School?
Fischer, Thomas C.
Journal of Law and Education, v22 n4 p409-22 Fall 1993
Traces legal balance in "Tinker" between Constitutional rights of students and caveat that these rights were secure only as exercise did not "interfere" with disciplinary processes of school. Cites changing political landscape; free exercise and establishment of religion; and search and seizure. Concludes that students appear to enjoy only those rights that school officials elect to accord them. (MLF)
