The First Amendment and the Rehnquist Court: Protecting Majority Values or Limiting Individual Liberty?
Schimmel, David
Social Education, v55 n6 p380-83 Oct 1991
Examines recent Supreme Court opinions to illustrate how the justices are reinterpreting the First Amendment. Discusses student freedom of expression, freedom of religion, the free exercise clause, and the establishment clause. Concludes that a perceived trend in court decisions to limit freedom of religion and expression requires teachers to help students understand constitutional questions. (DK)
