Explain Tinker v. Des Moines. Why is it important to school press?
Several high school students decided to wear black armbands for a set amount
of time in support for a truce in 1965 in Vietnam. The principle became aware of
this and made those with black armbands suspended. The first lawsuit was in
favor of the school, but the appeal put it under symbolic freedom of speech. This
is important because freedom of speech through symbolic things like armbands
are not always as recognized as traditional freedom of speech and it’s important
to remember that, also you don’t always have as much freedom in some settings
like school than in others.

Explain Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier. Why is it important to school press?

important because even though we have freedom of speech, we can’t just write
or say whatever we want.
