Student Internet Speech: Where Does the Schoolyard End in the Cyberworld?
Denny, Thomas D.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Illinois State University
This study examines student internet speech that originates off-campus but results in discipline from school. The history of the issue of student speech is explored to set the foundation for the current issue. In the absence of a Supreme Court ruling on student off-campus internet speech, cases reaching the Federal level are explored in search of commonalities. The resulting information is synthesized to create two artifacts. The first is a matrix to summarize the rulings and rationale of the cases. The second is a reference tool to guide administrators in dealing with similar student speech cases. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
