Youth Rights Research
Part of the dilemma of fighting for the recognition of the rights of young people and advocating for extending those rights is that many people do not know what rights they have now, which rights are infringed on by law, and which rights they should advocate for.
Point to Ponder
"And surely there is in all children... a stubbornness, a stoutness of mind arising from natural pride, which must, in the first place, be broken and beaten down; that so the foundation of their education, being laid in humility and tractableness, other virtues may, in their time, be built thereon." - John Robinson, pastor of the 1650's Pilgrim colony in the New World, as quoted in A People's History of the United States by H. Zinn.
