When Teachers Get Too Tough.
Dowling-Sendor, Benjamin
American School Board Journal, v187 n5 p26,28,68 May 2000
In a case involving use of physical force against a misbehaving eighth grader, a federal court judge concluded that the teacher's conduct did not violate the student's due-process rights, after applying the "shock the conscience" test. However, the case proceeded to trial, since district policy supported such force. (MLH)
