Students' legal rights and responsibilities by Michael W La Morte( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the impact of a variety of court cases involving the legal rights and responsibilities of public secondary school students. Each chapter begins with a brief commentary that provides an overview of a broad area of student rights, followed by a number of short sections that focus on significant subtopics. The final section of each chapter presents edited reports of leading cases applicable to that area of school law. Editing has been minimized in an effort to retain the flavor of each case; a total of 27 cases are reported in this manner. The individual chapters focus on the following topics: dress and personal appearance, freedom of expression, rights of married students, secret organizations, search of students and their lockers, and procedural due process.

Discipline Problems Then and Now by Albert J Kingston( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper compares data collected in a 1974 survey of discipline problems in Georgia secondary schools with data from a similar survey conducted by the same investigators in 1961. The 1961 survey examined 20 types of student misbehavior that had been identified in earlier studies; the 1974 survey included those 20 plus 13 additional items. The revised survey questionnaire was sent to the principals of 341 Georgia secondary schools during the spring of 1974, and a total of 266 (78 percent) responded. This compared to an 81 percent response rate in 1961. Although there were some definite differences between data from the two surveys, the most common types of student misbehavior in 1961 were also the most common in 1974. Included in the paper are a number of data tables that summarize responses to both surveys and facilitate comparisons between them. (JG)

A Comparison of the Organizational Climates of Negro and WhiteElementary Schools with Concomitant Implications for SchoolAdministrators by Harold W Gentry( Book )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faculty perception of school organizational climate in a predominately segregated school system was determined from a sample of 45 negro and 66 white elementary schools in a southeastern urban school district. A modified form of halpin and croft's organizational climate description questionnaire was used to gather data on eight dimensions of teacher perception of faculty and principal behavior--disengagement, hindrance, esprit, intimacy, aloofness, production emphasis, trust, and consideration. Scores in these areas were scaled on a continuum of organizational climate--open, autonomous, controlled, familiar, paternal, and closed. Findings indicated both negro and white faculties tended to view their schools as paternalistic, but that negro faculties viewed their schools as more closed than white faculties did. The study included a summary of role expectations of negro and white principals, with evidence that principals of white schools have more successfully resolved role-conflicts between their faculty and community responsibilities because these positions are less widely separated for them than for negro principals.

The Relationship Between the Organizational Climate of ElementarySchools and School Location, School Size, and the Economic Level of theSchool Community by Harold W Gentry( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study investigated the relationship between the organizational climate in 221 elementary schools and (1) classification of the school by its urban, suburban, or rural location, (2) school size as measured by number of professional staff members, and (3) economic level of the community served by the school. An organizational climate description questionnaire measured teacher perception of faculty interaction (disengagement, hindrance, esprit, intimacy) and teacher perception of leader behavior (aloofness, production emphasis, thrust, consideration). These eight dimensions formed six different types of organization climate--open, autonomous, controlled, familiar, paternal, and closed. Rural schools were more frequently perceived as having a "closed" climate than urban and suburban ones. However, 22 percent of the rural schools were seen as "familiar." Limited financial resources, lack of community activity, and heavy migration of young talent might influence rural ratings. There was a discernible relationship between school size and organizational climate, although it was not found to be statistically significant. As school size increased, the climate moved toward the "closed" end of the continuum. Low income schools were perceived by their teachers as "closed." A bibliography is included. This article is published in "urban education," volume 3, number 1, P.19-31, 1967. (af)
