Summary

Student rights are those civil liberties that protect students-any persons attending schools, universities, and other educational institutions. While school officials have a responsibility to ensure a safe learning environment for their students, they are also required to legally recognize that students do not lose their constitutional rights "at the schoolhouse gate," as the U.S. Supreme Court wrote. This fully revised edition presents not only all of the legal opinions, laws, and studies related to this important issue, but also examines the rights of students through the prism of the Fourth Amendment and school searches, the First Amendment and student dress, and the right to due process and zero tolerance.

Excerpts

Public school officials have a responsibility to ensure a safe learning environment for their students. But school officials also must recognize that public school students do not lose their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse gate, as the U.S. Supreme Court wrote. The Rights of Students, Second Edition examines students' rights through the prism of the Fourth Amendment and school searches, the First Amendment and student dress, and the right to due process and zero tolerance. This revised edition presents all of the legal opinions, statutes, and studies readers need to form their own cohesive arguments.
