School Discipline Reform, Liability, and the Law of Unintended Consequences: Essential Court Cases and Model Policies
Dr. Bernard James, Pepperdine University
This session will examine school discipline reform in a brief but empirical manner, focusing on two themes: (1) a comparison of the elements of restorative justice in its seminal form to the actual policies in use by school officials in the education environment; and (2) a survey of judicial proceedings that impose liability on educators whose discipline policies conflict with clearly established law on student rights.  Essential court decisions, model policies, and hypothetical cases will provide tools for identifying the constitutional side of the line.
