Student Speech and the Internet: A Legal Analysis
Graca, Thomas J.; Stader, David L.
NASSP Bulletin, v91 n2 p121-129 2007
This article lays the foundation of American First Amendment jurisprudence in public schools and examines recent cases relating to student Internet speech. Particular emphasis is placed on the ability of schools to regulate student off-campus Internet speech. School authorities who wish to regulate nonthreatening off-campus speech in the electronic media likely must demonstrate a nexus between the off-campus speech and substantial disruption at school.
