Take this quiz to test your knowledge about the topics discussed in this workshop:

  1. Students have very few constitutional protections because schools are seen as being in loco parentis which means that, during the school day, the school has the same authority as a student’s parents. This interpretation of student protections has changed:
    very little in the last 40 years
    somewhat, due to cases such as Tinker v. Des Moines
    radically; student rights are now essentially the same as those of adults
