Courts which have faced the question of whether the due process clause applies to school disciplinary hearings have held both ways. Until recently, the United States Supreme Court had declined to hear the issue. This changed, however, with the Court's five to four decision in Goss v. Lopez, where the court held that the due process clause does apply to school disciplinary proceedings. This Comment will analyze Goss and compare it with the case law developed in the lower courts.
