Flashcards in MODULE 6 || §4.2 BALANCING THE INTERESTS (pg 139-140) Deck (3)
At one time it was believed that to attend school was a privilege and that virtually any school rule or regulation constraining a student's conduct was valid.
IS THE PRIVILEGE DOCTRINE STILL VALID TODAY?
The courts recognize that students do not "shed their constitutional interests when they enter a schoolhouse door."
An environment for learning requires that student conduct be regulated.
It's obvious that a student cannot be permitted the personal freedom to come and go at will or to ignore reasonable rules such as to be quiet in a library.
