Land of the unfree, and the home of the dumb
See this.

In a New Jersey high school a teacher forced a student to stand for the national anthem by 1) yelling like a drill sargent, and 2) by pulling the chair out from under the student. The student was probably just lazy, but what the teacher did was illegal, of corse the school, which is even more inept than my own high school, choose not to punish the teacher (how dare we punish a teacher) insted opting to suspend the student who recorded the incident because it violated the teachers rights, despite the fact that it was perfectly legal, partially as journalism, partially as he was a public employee on public property.

So teachers can violate student rights, but students can't do anything. How typical.
