This page is part of a project that
I am required to complete inorder to enter into Division III Arts &
Humanities. I attend the Francis W. Parker Charter Essential School,
in Devens Massachusetts which has its home page here.
My name is Sandra Brown, and I'm
in my sophomore year of school, technically. However, we don't have
The topic of these pages
is "How Students Rights Are Being Protected and Violated By Local Schools."
I chose this topic because we've been learning primarily about American
history through may sub-sections this year in Arts and Humanities.
It also tied into what I do in my school, I am a Community Congress official,
but not for long since we are re-writting the constitution and it no longer
contains my position. I also enjoy doing things with government.
So, I decided that this was the project I would complete, considering it
was my favorite.
What the Project Intales For Me
1. Research The Constitution and Supreme Court Rulings.
Outline the ones which impacted student’s rights, and include them in the
2. Interview administrators and students from
schools in surrounding area. Possible schools; Groton-Dunstable,
North Middlesex, Bromfield.
3. Using collected research, define possible
focuses of the artistic piece, and create it. Also create graphics
and a symbol for the student’s rights movement (it could happen) for the
4. Write a paper on how students rights are being
protected, and or violated.
5. Collect all research and begin to construct
the web site. The web site will contain 4 subcategories, the law
as written by the United States Government, the interviews I will conduct,
my written piece(s), subject to more essays than the initial essay, and
the forum, a collection of pieces which have been submitted by ‘net surfers’
and a message board where issue may be discussed.
Okay, so it will contain
5 subcategories, because of this page right here and the pages on Parker.
Close enough. I also chose this project because of my interest in
the web page. I love making web pages. My family was connected
to the Internet just this past September, and I've become quite accustomed
to it. I've done other pages, you can see here.
So I thank you all for
coming to my page on student rights, and remember that student rights are
an important part of today's society. Just because some adolecents
can't handle their rights at this age doesn't mean the majority can't.
We can and we will, and we deserve our rights as citizens, TODAY!!!!
