Abstract:
It is important to understand what cyberbullying is, the circumstances under which it occurs, what laws--if any--exist on the subject, and how courts have traditionally dealt with student speech, both on and off the school campus. As the Supreme Court has yet to address this question in the context of electronic speech, this bulletin will discuss what the Court has said so far and review some of those lower court decisions that deal with cyberbullying fact sets.

Abstract:
Between 2002 and 2007, the number of limited English proficiency (LEP) students in the state doubled from 60,149 to 112,534. There is not a definitive number for LEP parents whose children attend state public schools. While state and local educational agencies have considerable information outlining the rights of LEP students, none of the available guidance has comprehensively addressed the corresponding rights of LEP parents. This bulletin surveys key federal and state laws affecting the rights of LEP parents in North Carolina.

Each summary includes a citation to the relevant judicial opinion so that interested readers can read the opinion's actual text. Neither the Clearinghouse author nor the School of Government takes a position as to the truth of the facts as presented in the opinions or the merits of the legal conclusions reached by any court. For example, a Graham County Board of Education policy mandating random, suspicionless drug and alcohol testing of all its employees violated the State Constitution's guarantee against unreasonable searches.

Abstract:
Educators, parents, and students usually define curriculum as the courses the school offers and students earn credit for taking. Local school boards control the curriculum in North Carolina as long as they follow the guidelines of the State Board of Education. Teachers deliver the curriculum, but courts have established in North Carolina that they do not have the authority under the First Amendment to make changes in it, challenge or fail to follow the school board's curriculum decisions. The authors discuss the lack of First Amendment protection for teachers' curricular speech and the options schools boards have as a result of that lack of protection.
