  •  Is this free speech? (1+ / 0-)

    The student comes to class waiving a sign and shouting campaign slogans.  The teacher is unable to have a discussion on the day's topic.

    Obviously, this case is unlike that in many respects, but I want to make the point that allowing for some ability of schools to control the learning environment does not amount to violating speech rights.  The question then is how much, which is why I think the key question was about the domain of the school's power, not about what that power should be.

    And I love the ACLU!
