A group of ambitious Boston-area high schoolers have launched their own type of student empowerment app called 'Boston Student Rights.' The app was created by the Boston Student Advisory Council and its purpose is to help students understand their rights and responsibilities as members of the local school system.

The student empowerment app is easy to use and clearly outlines Boston’s public school policies in a way that high schoolers can easily understand. The app covers everything from the issue of free speech in the classroom to the question of cell phone usage on school grounds. The app is designed to not only clarify school rules, but to help students self-advocate in situations where they feel as through their rights have been violated.
