Know Your Rights

Private Schools

If you attend a private school, you unfortunately don’t have a constitutional free speech right. That’s because the Constitution is about limiting the actions of the government (including public schools). You may, however, have rights under certain federal and state laws.

For information about private school student rights in a particular context or jurisdiction, contact Lambda Legal (866-542-8336 or visit www.lambdalegal.org/help) or a local attorney.
