    By Lawrence F. Rossow and Jacqueline A. Stefkovich

    Topeka, KS: National Organization on Legal Problems of Education, 1995 70 pp. $19.95.

    The privacy rights of students have long been called into question by searches of lockers, desks, and student belongings. When do school personnel have the right to search lockers? Student belongings? What rules obtain when students are on field trips? School administrators wrestle with these questions as they face increasing calls for school safety, but they often have little expertise in this area. In this clearly presented monograph, Lawrence Rossow and Jacqueline Stefkovich deftly provide expertise on search and seizure. Through a careful analysis of federal and state legal precedents, the authors provide thoughtfully constructed views on the rights and responsibilities of both school officials and students. This volume should be mandatory reading for all school personnel.
