Schools have the legal right to suppress your freedom of speech if it interferes with learning, as explained in “What Constitutes Free Speech for Students” when the author includes “1969 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District, unless public school officials can show that language would “materially and substantially” interfere with discipline, they cannot censor students.” (“What Constitutes Free Speech for Students?” 1) So, was this students shorter skirt due to her high a real distraction? Now the entire ordeal of her having to be pulled out from her learning environment to change into much less appealing clothes in no way benefited anyone 's learning but prohibited the students learning with the added effect of her self of steam being destroyed. Ava is not the only example of enforced dress codes interfering with learning more than it benefits it, there are hundreds of thousands of these
It requires counselors to understand their role in "eliminating biases, prejudices, and processes of intentional and unintentional discrimination” (Herlihy, pg. 151). The ACA 's Code of Ethics does not allow counselors to condone or engage in discrimination that is based on sexual orientation. That was enforced in the 2010 Keeton v. Anderson-Wiley court case. In this case, Augusta State University counseling student Jennifer Keeton expressed desires to refuse treatment of LGBT patients and subject them to conversion therapy, and then refused to go through a remediation course required by the university.
To start, in May 1975, Texas made a law that if a school had enrolled undocumented children in their school, that they will decrease funds that are given to the schools. One Plaintiff in Plyler vs Doe involves sixteen students from Tyler Independent high school that could not provide proof of documentation, and James Plyler is the defendant. The court decided on the plaintiff and agreed that schools could not keep undocumented children from getting an education. Also, the court said that the 14 amendment is universal and applies to all persons in the territorial jurisdiction without regards to color, race, or nationality. They decided this because children can not take the blame for being in the united states undocumented because they were brought by their parents and not here by choice.
Before this case, people of the black community couldn 't go to college and they would settle for inferior. They weren 't even allowed to be interviewed for college as they were viewed as inferior as the titles they carried. Allan Bakke wanted to go medical school, but that was pretty difficult considering they didn 't even begin to consider letting him in. He filed a suit after his shocking revelation and the Supreme Court ordered the college to let him in, after which the college appealed to the court. The court accepted and the verdict came to this:" In Regents of University of California v. Bakke (1978), the Supreme Court ruled that a university 's use of racial "quotas" in its admissions process was unconstitutional, but a school 's use of "affirmative action" to accept more minority applicants was constitutional in some circumstances."

School uniforms can restrict students from expressing themselves, according to the first Amendment of the US Constitution it guarantees that all individuals have the right to express themselves freely so if the constitution says that than schools should not have school uniforms (supreme court). School uniforms also promote conformity over individuality and at a time when schools are encouraging an appreciation of diversity, enforcing standardized dress sends a contradictory message that many people disagree with (Howe II). School uniforms do not stop bullying and may increase violent attacks, overall, there is no evidence in bullying literature that supports a reduction in violence due to school uniforms (Jeffords). Students just don’t like school uniforms a peer-reviewed study by researchers at the University of Nevada at Reno found that 90% of seventh and eighth grade public school students did not like wearing uniforms (Wharton). Overall, I think the reasons to implement a school uniform outweigh the reasons to vote against
The First Amendment Free Speech Clause requires courts and school districts to weigh and balance the need for a safe, orderly school environment conductive to learning and guarantee the right to speak or engage in expressive activity (Darden, 2006). This means that if students are not disturbing others from learning then they are allowed to express their selves freely. This resides back to the Tinker verse Des Moines ICSD case, when principals suspended students for wearing black armbands in protest of the Vietnam War. The Supreme Court ruled in favor for the students stating that school officials must demonstrate that the speech would disrupt school activities, which in this case it did not (Darden, 2006). Speech is not just considered
Such crucial decisions may concern faith, moral values, political affiliation, marriage, procreation, or death. The federal constitution guarantees the right of individuals to make these decisions according to their own conscience and beliefs. The government is not constitutionally permitted to regulate such deeply personal matters. The right of privacy protected by the Constitution gained a foothold in Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. (1965), in which the Supreme Court struck down a state statute forbidding married adults from using birth control because the statute violated the sanctity of the marital bedroom. Acknowledging that the Constitution does not mention the word privacy anywhere in its text, the Court held that a general right to privacy may be inferred from the express language of the First, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments, as well as from the interests protected by them.
The most recent shock to the people regarding the topic of abortion was when President Trump was pictured with six other men signing a ban on federal funding for international groups that provide information on abortions. Considering this was a picture of seven men making a decision that would affect women across the nation, it’s understandable as to why people would be upset about this.Though to have a better understanding of both sides it is important to be aware of how the first debate came to be. In 1971, a case first came up where Jane Roe, a Texas resident, wanted to terminate her pregnancy by abortion. At the time, Texas law prohibited abortions and the only exception to the law was if the pregnancy put the women’s life at risk. After being appealed, the case was taken on by the Supreme Court.
When outlining equality, diversity, inclusion and policys Law plays the key role within these policys. It is unlawful for any education provider, including a private or independent provider, to discriminate between pupils on grounds of race, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, and religion or belief in admissions, access to benefits or services, exclusions, and in the employment of staff. There are some exceptions to allow for the maintenance of faith schools and single-sex schools; some disabled pupils and pupils with a statement of “special educational needs” may be segregated in special schools, and schools may temporarily or permanently exclude pupils for disciplinary reasons.

As seen in previous cases like Tinker vs. Des Moines, students have the right to political say, unless it causes disruption at school of students are promoting something that goes against the law. In the case of Tinker v Des Moines the students were not promoting anything illegal but showed their thought on the Vietnam War by wearing black armbands (Tinker). Argued in court by Kenneth W. Starr in the Morse v. Frederick case, he gave the idea that the foundation for school censorship was the case of Tinker v. Des Moines (Morse). The Justices responded back saying, that case was a different scenario as the students weren 't doing anything against the law while Frederick was encouraging the use of marijuana which was illegal (Morse).
