At Law’s End: An Analysis of School Administrators’ Exercise of Discretion in Schools
Nora M. Findlay is currently a doctoral student at the University of Western Ontario. Of her almost twenty years as an educator, she has served for the past nine as a school-based administrator at both the elementary and secondary levels. Her paper is based upon her dissertation topic which considers the notion of discretion from legal and administrative perspectives and examines how it is exercised by school administrators as they work to balance competing rights in the school setting.
