A teaching union is calling for the introduction of a pupils' charter to set out the rights of young people in Scottish schools.
The union said more work needed to be done
The document proposed by the EIS would cover areas including equality, access to teachers and the right to be taught free from disruption by unruly pupils.
The union wants children to be at the centre of the decision-making process.
But the Scottish Executive said pupils' rights were recognised and protected through existing legislation.
The EIS said much was being done to develop the role of parents in education.
However, it argued that more work needed to be done clarifying the rights and needs of pupils.
It wants to see the creation of a pupils' charter based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The Scottish Executive said pupils' views were already heard and acted on through school councils and other consultations.
The local government body Cosla suggested that a young person's charter - recognising their role across civic life - may be of more benefit.
