Wheeler, Thomas E., II
This is a collection of paper copies of overhead transparencies that were used for a presentation on student rights and school law. The presentation covered the following topics: (1) student First Amendment rights, focusing on freedom of speech expressed through speeches, articles in student newspapers, demonstrations, T-shirts, and the Confederate flag; (2) student dress and appearance, focusing on gang-related clothing, tattoos, earrings, cross-dressing, hats, and headgear; (3) Internet use, focusing on students' home Web sites; and (4) threats of violence against teachers and students made by students through Web sites and other means. A number of the overheads provide brief outlines of important court cases involving student rights, including "Tinker v. Des Moines" (1969),"Bethel v. Fraser" (1986), and "Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier" (1988). (WFA)
