This is regardless of your gender, choice of religion, political beliefs, physical ability, skin colour and any other characteristic that defines you as a individual either by choice or circumstance.
You have freedom to choose options that suit your need. You have the freedom to express your opinion in a respectful manner. Everyone has the right to practice their religion and gets to have a say in what happens at the school.
They teach you why rules are required, what behaviors are meant to be addressed by rules and the benefits of following rules (order and equity) and the consequences of not following rules (chaos and despair) by both the individual and the collective.
