A Right to Counsel - For School Psychologists?

pp. 30—39

Children's rights is a comparatively new legal phenomenon. Until the last few decades it was assumed that children had no need or right to legal interests or representation of their own, except in the rarest of circumstances. Parents, persons in loco parent is, including school authorities, and guardians, were expected to define and protect children’s interests. Where parents proved unfit, a state guardian would take over and decide the child’s fortunes.
