2 Do learners have too many rights? Should schooling be defined as a privilege so that professional educators can more aggressively respond to problems without being so concerned about their legal rights? How do you respond to the contention that poor discipline is related to the erosion of the authority of teachers and administrators?

3 Is school a privilege or right? In loco parentis—the school and the teacher act “in the place of the parent.” Literacy and education are critical to an individual’s economic well-being. Tinker v. Des Moines Independent School District (1969) Education is a property right. Neither students nor teachers leave their constitutional rights at the school door.
