Free Speech and Graduation Prayer.
Dowling-Sendor, Benjamin
American School Board Journal, v186 n3 p12-23,47 Mar 1999
The Ninth Circuit Court's decision upholding the Madison School District's policy allowing students to speak (and pray) at graduation ceremonies is correct. So long as students are selected by religiously neutral criteria (class rank) and can speak on any topic, the Free Speech Clause should protect that student's expression. (MLH)
