The school is correct in passing the rule preventing the wearing of armbands by students. Public schools are places for students to learn, not protest. We should not allow students to ignore the rules of the school board simply because they do not agree with them. School discipline is important in our public schools and we should not allow the Tinker children or any other student to interfere with the education of our children.
The school is not correct in passing the rule preventing the wearing of armbands by students. There was no disturbance in the school as a result of the wearing of the armbands. And, the learning of the students in the classes was not interfered with by the wearing of the armbands. Students should not have to give up their right to freedom of expression when they enter school.
