Getting an education isn't just about books and grades - students are also learning what to expect outside of the classroom.
In order to really prepare for life outside the halls of our schools, everyone should know their rights. The Bill of Rights guarantees that the government cannot deprive people of certain fundamental rights including the right to freedom of religion, free speech, and the due process of law. Many federal and state laws guarantee additional rights, too.
Let this page serve as a reminder that the Bill of Rights applies to everyone, including students.
