  1. Students have very few constitutional protections because schools are seen as being in loco parentis which means that, during the school day, the school has the same authority as a student’s parents. This interpretation of student protections has changed:

    somewhat, due to cases such as Tinker v. Des Moines
    radically; student rights are now essentially the same as those of adults
