In the “Bethel School District v. Fraser” case, Fraser believed that the school violated his first amendment “freedom of speech” rights. Fraser gave a speech with some inappropriate content in it and the school gave him a three day suspension because two teachers warned him before he gave the speech. Fraser took it to court and the justices said they would shorten the suspension and let him have his right to speak at graduation because the school was taking away his freedom of speech.
They all simply seem to be arguing against the Drug Testing for the reason that it is just wrong, and unconstitutional. There is no information leading me to assume that the students had previous problems with drugs, and wanted to avoid the test. The parents must have also played a big part, upset with the whole Drug Testing Policy happening with their children at the school. Majority decision of the Court: The Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision voted that the Drug Testing Policy was in fact, constitutional.

Several days later the Little Rock nine “returned back to the school, and entered through the side door so they can avoid the crowd of rowdy students and the press.” That same day they were found by more students whom “violently attacked them and innocent bystanders.” In 1958 the first African American, Ernest Green, graduated Little Rock Central High School, and the governor got “reelected and shut down all schools” in Little Rock, Arkansas because he did not want to integrate the schools of Little Rock, Arkansas.

Huntington is an United Brethren affiliated university, and the United Brethren denomination has a stance against homosexuality, stating in their governing documents that state that they “will only recognize marriages between a genetic, biological man and a genetic, biological woman”. As a school following their beliefs, Huntington must also proclaim that this is a truth that they hold to be important, and therefore will not allow same-sex married couples to live in campus housing or to be faculty here. Obviously, this goes drastically against SB1146, which desires the power to prohibit Christian universities, like Huntington, the right to refuse housing to same-sex married
