Mandatory Community Service in High School

This book focuses on three court rulings affecting mandatory high-school community service. It examines the rationale, functioning, and outcomes of high-school community-service programs and addresses the significant legal aspects of community service. It also analyzes court opinions and related legislation on community service and points out some possible future changes in these laws. The text is divided into eight chapters and outlines the four purposes of community service, such as the intellectual and academic benefits that accrue to students. It then turns to three mandatory programs that were challenged on the grounds that they violated constitutional prohibitions against involuntary servitude, infringed on freedom of speech, and limited personal liberty. The book looks at the common elements of the challenged programs and the courts' review of the questions surrounding the cases. It discusses how the school districts prevailed in the court cases, outlines the court-sanctioned legitimacy of connecting traditional in-class academic course content with experiential out-of-class service, and presents the argument that mandatory community service is beneficial to participating students. Also discussed are proposed and new legislation that will shape further the role of community service in public education.
