Intended to educate youth and parents about the rights and responsibilities of youth in society, this manual outlines the prevailing rules as well as U.S. and Illinois laws applying to youth. Separated into four categories, the manual explores the relationship of youth to society, youth to family, social controls on youth, and the rights and responsibilities of youth in schools. The integration of this information into the lives of children and young adults is designed to promote the preservation of rights and recognition of responsibilities which lie at the core of democracy. The pamphlet concludes with a description of additional resources available through the Constitutional Rights Foundation and information on how to obtain them. (TSV)
