The Right to Due Process

The Right to Due Process

Student Discipline and Civil Rights in Columbus, Ohio

(p.92) 3 The Right to Due Process

Kathryn Schumaker

NYU Press

This chapter discusses Goss v. Lopez, a Supreme Court case that established students’ rights to due process in school discipline. The case was the result of black student protests in Columbus, Ohio, that ended with mass suspensions of students.The Goss litigation challenged the ability of administrators to suspend and expel students at will. This chapter explores how the protests were rooted in broader concerns about racial discrimination at school and in response to the perceived discriminatory actions of administrators. The case reflected increased concerns about the discriminatory treatment of black students in cases of school discipline, and it discusses the efforts of organizations, including the Children’s Defense Fund and the Southern Regional Council, to publicize and combat this issue.
