Students have rights too. Even if they aren’t actively contributing to the country’s economy just yet, they have a right to a good education provided by the state, if possible. After all, the youth is the future of any nation. To make sure they are well-equipped with the knowledge, skills, and attitude they need to succeed in life and make good life choices, later on, a good education is crucial and can make or break their ultimate fate.
While students have inherent rights that are upheld by the constitution, schools and various educational institutions implement their own sets of policies that may or many not always align with a student’s rights. There are likewise instances when government officials subtly try to curtail these rights that they deem aren’t in the best interest of the nation. It’s a complicated topic, indeed, and has not only sparked countless debates but ongoing protest as well.
