In New York State, everyone younger than 21 who does not have a high school diploma has the right to attend a public school. This right is protected by our state constitution. When your school wants to suspend you, it is taking away that right for a period of time. But there are rules that the school must follow where your rights are concerned.
This guide will help you understand the rules, and protect your right to an education.
This KYR is not a replacement for legal advice.
