    What Constitutional Rights Do Students Have?

    (percussion music) – [Stephen] Here at Education Week, we’ve been digging deep into how to improve K through 12 civics education. But one thing’s really puzzled us. If the U.S. Constitution is the core document guaranteeing American’s rights, what does that mean for students? There have been a lot of U.S. Supreme Court cases that have taken aim at bits and pieces of this question, but it’s still pretty complicated. – I am a Law Professor at the University of Chicago and I’ve written a book called the Schoolhouse Gate. Essentially, it’s about how the Supreme Court has shaped the nation’s public schools by identifying and protecting students’ constitutional rights.…

    New Anti-Protest Laws Sweeping The US: Fines, Felonies & Freedom of Speech…

    (upbeat dance music) – Hello, hello. Welcome back to Rogue Rocket. My name is Philip DeFranco and today we’re gonna be talking about protests and, specifically, the right to protest in the United States. Under the First Amendment of the US Constitution I am guaranteed the ability to free speech. But, also, that same amendment includes the right to peaceably assemble, which includes protesting. But, over the past three years more than 100 bills have been introduced across 36 states to restrict protests or increase penalties for protesters and organizers alike. And many of these tie back to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests that you might remember making headlines back…

    PRESENTER: Welcome. It’s wonderful to see so many friends and supporters and colleagues here at tonight’s [INAUDIBLE]..

    Does the NSA Violate Your Constitutional Rights? | Learn Liberty

    Many people don’t know what their constitutional freedoms are or why they have them in the first place. They’ve gotten so used to the freedoms they’ve enjoyed as Americans that they haven’t noticed just how rare and fragile they really are. Before America’s founding, the British king George III would issue what were called general warrants, which empowered local authorities to look for wrongdoing anywhere and to use their discretion to find any kind of treasonous behavior, including among the people that would come to be our Founders. But this became such an abuse of dictatorial authority that after the Revolutionary War a prohibition on general warrants was written right…

    Red flag laws violate our rights ft. Dana Loesch | #TruthStraightUp

    ♪ Loesch: Red flag laws are a total bastardization of our right to due process. If you want to have someone declared ineligible to carry or purchase a firearm, we have many, many legal pathways for that to take place. You can have a civil commitment. You can have someone adjudicated mentally unfit. You can take out a restraining order against an individual. There are a number of ways to do this while still respecting the cornerstone of our republic, which is our right to due process. You don’t have to diminish this right by passing red flag laws. That’s what red flag laws do. I have yet to see…

    The Marriage Cases: Legal Challenges to Prop 8 and DOMA

    The 14th Amendment guarantees liberty and the equal protection of the law to every American. When a state refuses to recognize a marriage of two people of the same sex, is it violating those principles? Or when the federal government decides not to recognize a marriage that is legal in a state, is that a federal overreach? These are the questions that are before the Court in two cases in 2013. However the Court decides the cases, they raise underlying and enduring questions about liberty that all of us should care about. One case challenges a California State law popularly known as Prop 8, which was passed by the voters…
