Overview

The laws affecting students are complex, controversial, and in a constant state of flux.

Price, Levine, and Cary seek to define how much power school officials have to regulate students’ lives and what responsibilities they have to provide students with appropriate services and protections.

Racial discrimination, a subject so enormous and important that it requires a book of its own, is considered only as it affects various other topics, such as due process and corporal punishment.

The author’s make clear that although it can be costly to challenge practices that violate students’ rights, student involvement in setting school policies and active parent participation through associations, meetings, or petitions can offer more immediate and less costly means to eliminate or change offensive school policies.
