"That They Might Serve." School Law.
Splitt, David A.
Executive Educator, v18 n5 p13,39 May 1996
Service learning is not immune from legal problems. In 1993, the third Circuit Court of Appeals quashed a lawsuit claiming a school's mandatory public-service requirement violated the 1st and 13th amendments. The most recent case was pursued against a New York district whose modest public-service requirement supposedly forced students into involuntary servitude. The court found no violations of constitutional rights. (MLH)
