Freedom of Expression Laws and the College Press: Lessons Learned from the High Schools.
Paxton, Mark
This paper examines two recent attempts to enact state freedom of expression laws for public college and university students and discusses the prospects for such laws in the context of state scholastic freedom of expression laws covering high school journalists in six states. It examines the case of Kincaid v. Gibson, which decided that restriction on school-sponsored expression expounded in Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier applies to college and university expression. Based on research questioning the effectiveness of those state scholastic freedom of expression laws, it appears to be unlikely that similar laws protecting the First Amendment rights of college students will be as effective as proponents might expect.
