Yeah this is some BS assignment.

Here's the declaration of independence:
http://www.ushistory.org/declaration/doc…

Basically with high schools, what you need to do with most teachers is be as pretentious as possible and exagerate everything. Like if you're writing about a few suggestions to improve the education system, phrase it like you want the whole education system to be overhauled and radically replaced, but then just say the same few suggestions. With this particular assignment, you need to phrase it like "teenage rights" is the most important thing ever.

Use words/phrases like "natural rights," "endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights," "freedom," "tyranny," etc. Basically any psuedo-Locke sounding thing.

Actual complaints?
1. Age centered curfews, where people below a certain age have to leave early. 2. Having full control and informed consent over medical decisions. (you could mention some dangerous psych drugs that young people are sometimes forced on if you want like neurolyptics) 3. Complain about the compulsory nature of the school system + that you don't have more control over what you learn. 4. Age related harassment like this device:

5. Complain that the family unit is compulsory- teenagers can't just take up and leave their parents since that's "running away." 6. The drinking age is too high, can die Afghanistan but can't get a beer, cliche cliche etc.

I don't know that's all I can think of now.

Write something like this:
"The state has often placed limits on our ability to congregate and move about freely. Such curfews, often imposed upon teenagers in particular, limit our freedom to peacefully assemble and engage in the civic life of our society." And just keep writing crap like this until you can't think of anything and then go on to the next one. Once you finish you can go back and fix it up.

By the way, there actually is a "youth rights" movement but since it's not total BS I don't know how relevant it is to the assignment. Edited 1 year ago
