A Bill of Rights for Students
The Bill of Rights As If Written For Schools
1. All real administration and instructors shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble or to petition the government for a redress of grievances. Many without owning a speaking voice are uniquely qualified to issue thoughts of great value. Everyone has a unique voice. Teaching everyone and accessing them within their world is freeing to all. We are to find and understand each awesome voice and celebrate when we discover it.
2. The right each person has in being secure from others intent on harming teachers and students allows security from oppression. Teachers have a right and duty to protect students with whatever means is necessary. Real equality allows for self defense without fear of harm from anyone.
3. We enjoy the awesome assumption concerning all seats that students won’t sadly share those seats with teachers or administrators at the same time. If seats are short, we will all share turns in the seats.
4. The quiet right to privacy will secure personal work, bookbags, and lockers from unreasonable searches and seizures. Searches and seizures will require a sound basis in reasonable cause that a student has done wrong. Any information will always be protected as private when was not used in a crime.
5. A right to education shall belong to every student. All students will be assumed able to work and learn. Educators and administrators will always assume competence and gifts each student has are there for a reason. No one shall be held in an environment where they are not taught age appropriate material except with a finding, reviewed annually, that all efforts are made to communicate, including efforts to type with someone trained and certified by Syracuse University or a school with a a similar program. When wrongfully denying a student’s education, real quite equal compensation will be awarded to the child whose life is sadly wronged.
6. In all efforts to minimize or reduce learning for a student, educators and administrators shall be required to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt before a jury of autistic students or student graduates and others with severe handicaps before they are denied an ability to learn at grade level or higher. When a school system repeatedly violates this principle, any student denied an education may choose another district for education and the denying school will pay double the cost to educate the student.
7. When issues surrounding a student education involve matters of performance that do not relate or involve ability to learn but do impose undue burdens, a student may bring his case for better educational support to a jury of his peers and request access to what will help him advance more effectively. A school system may not retry cases involving a student determined to be competent.
8. All education shall quite fully continue with fast review of any questions seeking to change an educational path, owing to the value true of real acquisition of knowledge and its importance in life.
9. The enumeration of these rights shall never diminish other rights as to the school system.
10, Powers not delegated specifically to the school shall reside in the teachers and students respectively.
