1st Amendment Reflection

It was over 30 years ago that the Tinkers were suspended from school for wearing armbands, only to have the Court rule that their free speech rights should be protected.  Do you think things have changed today? Do students today have MORE or LESS free speech than the Tinkers?

  • Are students’ 1st amendment rights protected at TechBoston?  In what ways are they protected? In what ways are they violated?
  • This case deals specifically with clothing and free speech. Do you think that some limits on what students wear are necessary?  Why or why not?
