Jo, Seog Hun
Journal of Law & Education, v31 n4 p413-30 Oct 2002
Explores tests for determining teachers' free-speech rights established in two Supreme Court decisions: "Pickering" and "Connick." Analysis includes discussion of confusion between teacher's status as a citizen and that of an employee. Concludes that courts should use the balancing principle in "Pickering" to determine the scope of the First Amendment free-speech clause for public employees. (Contains 75 references.) (PKP)
