STUDENT FAIR TREATMENT
If you have any questions regarding Student Fair Treatment, please contact us for a Free Student Fair Treatment Consultation.
All students are guaranteed the right to fair and equal education opportunity, despite their color, race, religion, class, sex or citizenship.
Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas set the standard for the desegregation of public schools and this case also started the movement for equal educational opportunities.
The right to equal education also includes students with disabilities because of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This means that all students should have the same opportunities in public high schools. Fair treatment is basically giving due process to all public high school students. This includes guaranteeing hearings for suspended students.
This was not recognized as a right until 1975 and Goss v. Lopez. All students in public high schools are now entitled to due process.
