Teens Take It to Court: Young People Who Challenged the Law - and Changed Your Life: Easyread Super Large 18pt Edition
Your life is impacted daily by decisions made in courts. The U.S. judicial system exists to provide ''justice for all,'' including teenagers. But minors don't have the same legal rights as adults, so what happens when teens take it to court? Young People Who Challenged the Law - and Changed Your Life The teens in this book fought for issues that matter. The facts and real outcomes of their cases are here, along with information on related cases, tough questions to consider, and a follow-up ''Get on the Case'' section that further explores the big-picture possibilities for each issue. You'll deliberate over the cases, just as a judge would. It's up to you to weigh questions like: Can a parent of a minor give police permission to search a child's personal belongings - over the child's objection? Should it be illegal to wear gang colors or symbols? If a prayer at a school function is voluntary, does it violate the separation of church and state? Do parents have a right to prevent their daughter from getting an abortion? Once you know the facts and consider all the questions, you'll decide: Did justice prevail or were teens denied? To be a fair judge, you need the whole story plus the background information.
