Here’s a nifty list of 10 facts every student should know about their guaranteed religious liberties.

This one comes to us from the Liberty Institute:

10 Facts Every Student Must Know about Religious Rights in School

Before students order their books and fill their backpacks, they need to think about preparing their most valuable back-to-school tool yet: knowledge of their religious liberty rights.

The number of religious liberty attacks increases each year, and yet, many students don’t know that there’s anything they can do about it. So before students make those last minute runs to Walmart and Staples, we at Liberty Institute encourage them to prepare now for the battles they might encounter this school year:

1. Students have the right to First Amendment protections in public schools.

The First Amendment protects students’ freedom of speech and freedom to express their religious beliefs. Just because they walk through the schoolhouse doors does not mean students lose these constitutionally protected rights.

2. Students have the right to read their Bibles at school during free reading times.

The Bible is a book. If students can read other books of their choice at school, they can read the Bible too.
