Natural Justice, Children and the School
Two cases dealing with children’s expulsion from school serve as the starting point for a discussion of the social assumptions underlying legal interpretations of applicability of the rules of natural justice to children. The principles of natural justice, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and relevant developments in American and Australian law dealing with children are discussed. Social definitions of children are outlined. Finally, two models of political community are explored with respect to their implications for the extension of due process rights to children in the school setting and for participation by children in the social and political life of the school.
