Transcript Freedom Onslaught Hmmm. let's see . . . deny them their rights at an early age — that way they won't expect too much when they get older . . . yeah, that's the ticket. Enough already! Somebody was obviously not happy with the current state of student freedoms in public education in 1980 and set out to change that. My congratulations to the justices of the Supreme Court for affecting the change with swiftness and efficiency. The students of America hardly realized what hit them. At the beginning of this decade, students did not "shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the school house gate." Four years following the election of a new president, students no longer had the protection from searches that "adults" take for granted as being guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment. In 1986, two years following the president's re-election by a landslide, students were again in court, falsely assuming that the protection of the First Amend- "We hold that educators do not offend the First Amendment by exercising editorial control over the style and content of student speech in school-sponsored expressive activities so long as their actions are reasonably related to legitimate pedagogical concerns." — Justice Byron White, for a Supreme Court majority in upholding censorship of a school newspaper. [14:4] "The mere fact of school sponsorship does not, as the Court suggests, license such thought control in the high school, whether through school suppression of disfavored viewpoints or through official assessment of topic sensitivity." — Justice William J. Brennan Jr., in dissent. [14:5] ment applied to them. Now, in the remaining months of the current administration, students have been dealt the harshest blow of them all. Not only are their rights not protected inside the schoolhouse gates, but they also are subjected to censorship at all "school-sponsored" activities. The Supreme Court in all cases have only established precedent, it has not passed any laws. To prevent the Supreme Court or school boards or school principals or school teachers from being given such an "enclave of totalitarianism," which "strangle the free mind at its source," William J. Brennen, Jr. said for the dissent in Hazelwood School District V. Kohlmeier. State legislatures should pass laws that clearly define a student's rights inside the schoolhouse gates. Another day, another ri^hl — it's becoming old hat. The rate of occurrence is faster and faster. — Lara Schultz When all else fails — protest — it's guaranteed by the 1st.
