Students and Free Speech
As you probably know the Supreme Court has recently ruled against the Alaskan student who raised a banner (“Bong Hits 4 Jesus”) as the Olympic torch passed by—at an off-campus event. The Court ruled that the school officials who suspended the student were within their rights to punish him because this was a message promoting drugs. Well, the sad fact of the matter is that apparently you do lose some of your free speech rights when you become a student. Incredible as that may sound.
