Does freedom of assembly apply to a high-school junior organizing a protest against the school administration? Does disrespecting a teacher fall under freedom of speech? The diverse perspectives in this collection explore the concept of student rights and tackle what civil and constitutional rights are covered when you're in an educational environment. Readers can expect discussions of relevant court cases and instances of student-led activism, as well as a focus on protected sources for student reporters.
