The civil rights of students by David Schimmel( Book )

6 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended to help students, teachers, administrators, and parents become more aware of students' legal rights and more sensitive to arguments on both sides of current civil rights controversies. The authors attempt, whenever possible, to translate legal jargon into language more readily understood by laymen, and they rely primarily on the "case" approach to discussing legal questions. This approach first describes the situation surrounding a legal controversy, then poses several questions that confront the major implications of the case, and finally summarizes the opinion of the court. Summaries at the end of each chapter integrate the rulings of the diverse cases presented in the chapter. Individual chapters examine provisions and applications of school law involving freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of association, freedom of religion and conscience, personal appearance, racial and ethnic segregation, sex discrimination, and due process of law.

Parents, schools, and the law by David Schimmel( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores parents' legal rights concerning their children's elementary and secondary education. Besides certain constitutional rights (including parents' right to direct their children's education), parents and students have been granted various rights under state and federal statutes. This book aims to demystify the law and provide parents with the necessary knowledge to assert their rights (outside the court system) and bring violations to the attention of teachers, administrators, and other parents so that their children receive an appropriate education. Following a brief overview of parents' rights, chapters 2 through 6 discuss rights derived from the Constitution, including a student's right to fair treatment by a school disciplinary system, First Amendment protections of freedom of speech and press, freedom of religion and separation of church and state, and equal educational opportunity. Chapters 7 through 9 focus on the common law and state control of education, covering compensation for injured children, damages collection for poor teaching, and conflicts between parent and state education agencies. Chapter 10 treats parents' rights concerning school records under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. Chapter 11 discusses federal law governing rights of parents of children with special education needs, highlighting the Education for All Children Act of 1975. Chapter 12 concerns physical appearance (proper dress), while chapter 13 confronts the rights of poor and non-English-speaking parents and children. The final chapter covers legal literacy for parents. Three appendices provide constitutional amendments of special relevance to parents and students, legal research hints, and two Supreme Court decisions. Also included are a table of cases, chapter endnotes, and an index. (Mlh)

The rights of parents in the education of their children by David Schimmel( Book )

7 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the legal rights that parents have in the education of their children from kindergarten through high school. These rights are of two kinds: the rights that parents have on their own, as parents, and the rights they have as agents for their children. Currently, all the constitutional rights that apply to adults in the community also apply to young people in the public schools. The purpose of this book is to enable parents of public school students to constructively take the law into their own hands. Its aim is to provide them with the knowledge necessary to assert their rights and to bring violations to the attention of teachers, administrators and other parents so that they can help their children receive the kind of education to which they are legally entitled. Specifically, individual chapters deal with: a students' right to be treated fairly by a school disciplinary system; the First Amendment protection of freedom of speech and press; freedom of religion and the separation of church and state as it affects the public schools; personal appearance; the constitutional right of equal educational opportunity and the violation of this right because of racial or sexual discrimination; the common law and state control of education; federal statutory rights; parents' rights; and legal literacy for parents. It discusses ways parents can learn more about the law and ways that legal literacy can be improved throughout the country. It examines a wide range of constitutional, statutory, and common law rights that parents can assert on behalf of their children and their childrens' education. (Author/AM)
