Student First Amendment Rights: Wisconsin School Board Association.
Baldwin, Gordon B.
Issues in students' First Amendment rights are discussed in this paper, which is directed toward school board members. The "Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Schools" (1969) decision is discussed, in which the United States Supreme Court struck down the discipline imposed on students who wore black armbands during school hours to protest the Vietnam War. A second court decision, "Hazelwood School v. Kuhlmeier" (1988), addresses the issue of principal censorship of school-sponsored newspapers. Finally, "Board of Education v. Pico" (1982) is discussed, which addresses school board discretion to remove objectionable books from school libraries. (LMI)
