Due Process In Education Law And School Law
The area of education law and school law encompasses due process. The Fifth Amendment of the United States Constitution provides that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of the law. This extends to protections in public schools. Due process requires adequate notice, an opportunity to be heard, and fundamental fairness. Suspensions, expulsions, and transfers to alternative schools, all require a notice element. Many private schools also have due process protections outlined in the school’s handbook.
