Summary

Some educators and public officials view schooling for character and citizenship as a basic purpose of public education. However, education that touches on personal beliefs and behaviors has become a subject of legal controversy. This paper explores ways in which public schools might deliver instruction about character and citizenship that are both legally defensible and educationally sound. The first part reviews selected statutes, in particular, Nebraska State statutes and sections of the Goals 2000: Educate America Act. The next part reviews selected cases pertaining to general education, special education, behaviors and beliefs, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and schools' responsibility. Schools should expect civil and respectful student behavior; maintain a safe, orderly environment; teach students about individual responsibility to society; prevent student behavior from disrupting the educational process; explore controversial ideas with students; and help students reflect on the role of rules.
