Student Liberty and Justice for All

The Line

The 4th of July brings a much-needed day for relaxation and remembrance after wrapping up another busy school year. Who isn’t ready for some sunshine, picnics and fireworks?

But as we relax and remember, Independence Day gives us yet another opportunity: to reflect on the critical issue of student liberty and how it comes to life in K-12.

  • How are we doing in pursuit of equitable education for all students? 
  • How are student liberties balanced against the rights of their communities?
  • How is K-12 changing in the face student protests, systemic racism and illegal immigration?

These are not small questions, and they present ample opportunity for civil discourse on all sides. We tackle these issues and more in Issue 3 of The Line.
