The Search for Reasonableness: Legal Issues in Student Discipline.
Gordon, William M.
School Business Affairs, v61 n7 p18-21 Jul 1995
There are specific legal restrictions on types of school disciplinary measures. The courts have tended to uphold traditional notions of school discipline, measuring these by the common-law yardstick of reasonableness or viewing the schools "in loco parentis." This article reviews major court decisions involving detention, corporal punishment, suspension, alternative placements, withholding credit, and expulsion. (22 legal references) (MLH)
