    To what extent should schools limit 1st amendment rights? It's always been a controversial court subject, but I've yet to meet someone that is against it.

    /---- I was taught the 1st Amendment applied to political speech protecting you if you criticized the Government. IT has other applications found here. What Does Free Speech Mean?

    To answer you question, no child should be censored because his/her thoughts run contrary to the administration.

    A college syllabus should always include the disclaimer that no property rights are involved in student product, which includes written material. College is not a civil right.

    I feel that first amendment rights should allow anything that does not cause major disruption (or has an obvious potential to), follows school rules (i.e. not wearing clothing that advocates drugs or violence), and does not infringe on other students rights. That is broad enough to allow schools to stop certain actions that would be detrimental to the school environment, while specific enough to allow for students to excercise their right.

    Technically, so long as such rights among juveniles do not interfere with the rights of other juveniles or staff, they should not be particularly restricted in schools, beyond time and place of exercise.

    De facto, my son had only the rights I as a parent granted him until he came of age.

    Right. Billy is giving his daily rant about dogs being better than cats while the teacher is trying to teach the rest of the class to read. Should she just wait until Billy is through?

    As long as it doesn't infringe on other people, who cares??
    I will clarify religion shouldn't be part of the learning experience at all.

    In this case, Billy is disrupting class; however, Billy should be free to wear a shirt with a caption stating dogs are better than cats (within the schoold dress code).
