    Ten Supreme Court Cases Every Teen Should Know

    Date: 09.20.07 | by Judge Tom.

    Did you know that you have a right to express yourself at school–up to a point? Or that your work on the school yearbook or newspaper may be censored? Can you be tried as an adult if you get into trouble with the law? Can you be randomly drug tested at school?

    These and other questions have been considered by the U.S. Supreme Court – read about these cases and the Court’s decisions in the New York Times/Scholastic Upfront magazine [Sept./Oct., 2007] at:      http://teacher.scholastic.com/scholasticnews/indepth/upfront/features/index.asp?article=f090307_Teen_Supremes2.
