Some interesting and clever suggestions so far. However, being a very straight forward thinker, I would not go looking for the info you wish to promulgate under those headings.
If I was a student and went on a search, I would tend to go straight for the most simple address ike "studentrights.com"

Prosaic but...

Perhaps, but rights just seems so much of a strong word for some reason - kinda associated with rather radical, 'let's bring down the system' sort of thinking... I dunno.

So you want to assert students' rights, but you don't want to upset anyone in the process? Hell, things have changed since I was at school ...

students' rights webpage offering practical (and sensible) advice about school councils, organising petitions, youth activities etc
Um...I feel like I'm stating the obvious, but how about
studentgovernment.org ? Possibly abbreviating government?

If one of the key aims involved is to get authorities to even think about trusting the opinions of young people, then to go about upsetting anyone would be counter-productive as it will just enforce some peoples' opinions that young people cannot be sensible, compromising and realistic, with thier campaigns lost in some rather idealitic dream.
The best way to be taken seriously is to be reasonable and inoffensive - especially where it's least expected!

Which just about sums up Saddam Hussein's approach to life, the universe and everything since the Gulf War. And look where that's got him!

Pfranz: Erk! How do I respond to that??
On the other hand, I'm not accused of war crimes and stockpiling weapons of mass destruction... I just want some teachers to listen to students a bit more!

How do you know you're not? You want to start a students' rights website, well the oldies are just going to assume you are a neo-Marxist in socialist's clothing. That's got to be worth at least three chemical warheads (filled with sulphur dioxide) and half a teaspoon of smelly plutonium carefully gathered from a cyclotron hidden up a camel's rectum.

You are a positive danger to society, and you ought to be locked away.

I dunno what the world's coming to, I really don't. What is all this crap about students having rights anyway? They have wrongs, and even those are doled out with care, only to the most deserving cases, preferably to those students who are quadraplegics.

Bet you turn up to classes, too. Now there's something that's highly suspicious!
