Thursday, September 13, 2012

In the Rutherford Institute’s online publication, OldSpeak, First Amendment Center Scholar David L. Hudson Jr. discusses key cases involving students on the receiving end of harsh, authoritarian treatment by teachers and administrators for expressing their sincerely held personal beliefs.

Hudson talks about his book, Let the Students Speak!: A History of the Fight For Free Expression in American Schools, which documents the trajectory of students’ First Amendment rights.
