Landmark Supreme Court Cases Webinars: Tinker v. Des Moines

February 4, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

To what extent did students have a right to expressive speech while in school? This issue was at the root of Tinker, in which a group of students chose to protest the war in Vietnam by wearing armbands. Considered inappropriate by school officials, the students were disciplined, motivating their parents to sue. The court eventually determined that the school had violated the students’ constitutional rights, asserting that “…students do not abandon their civil rights at the schoolhouse door.” This case still shapes school discipline codes relating to free expression by students.
