Academic Freedom: In Our Minds, the Legal Myth Dies Slowly!
Strope, John L., Jr.
NASSP Bulletin, v83 n610 p14-21 Nov 1999
Before 1980, academic-freedom litigation favored teachers over school boards. As a 1998 case involving termination of a popular creative-writing teacher shows, today's judges rely on decision makers' judgement. Courts view academic freedom as the province of school boards and administrators, who determine how it is exercised. (MLH)
