As NYRA continues to grow, we feel that it is necessary to publish more documents and guides for youth, particularly students.
A recent project that Stefan Muller and I have taken on is developing a “Student Rights Handbook” where we list all of the rights that students have at schools and any limitations on those rights.
This valuable document will eventually be distributed to students in schools nationwide providing them with an immediate reference to their rights. This will enlighten students who are not aware of their rights and decide to just accept the punishment or oppression they may receive from their school’s administration.
In order for this to be a success, we need everyone’s help. This is CRUCIAL. Stefan and I cannot do this all alone – we can only list and summarize all of the rights that we are aware of and not others that you may know about. Anyone can help, and your help will be much appreciated. What comes out of this project will be a valuable asset to students all across the United States, and it will have a big impact on the youth rights movement.
If you want a chance to help NYRA and the movement, I challenge you to do so now. If you want to have an impact, you need to work on this project. Your work will benefit hundreds of thousands of students who have ever been mistreated at school and were not aware of their applicable rights.
