Balancing Act: Teachers' Classroom Speech and the First Amendment.
Daly, Karen C.
Journal of Law and Education, v30 n1 p1-62 Jan 2001
Discusses how using "Pickering v. Board of Education" or "Hazelwood School District v Kuhlmeier" as precedents in cases involving classroom speech by teachers has fostered court inconsistency. Proposes a judicial standard that emphasizes adequate notice to teachers when certain speech is proscribed and scrutinizes school-board actions when speech controversies arise.
