It’s the Law: When Do Parents Really Pose a Safety Risk?

By Perry A. Zirkel Principal, September/October 2017. Vol. 97, Number 1.

In the March/April 2011 issue of Principal magazine, we examined court cases that illustrated the legality of various school district responses to such parental conduct.
