ANOTHER FIRST AMENDMENT DECISION

Filed at 6:43 am under by dcobranchi

ANOTHER FIRST AMENDMENT DECISION A federal judge has ruled that a Pittsburgh school cannot punish students for “offensive or abusive Internet messages posted from home.” The school’s student handbook had gone too far in supressing protected speech, according to the judge. I like this quote from the mother of the affected student:

“Judge Ambrose’s decision not only protects students’ free speech rights,” she said, “but also protects the parents’ rights to raise and discipline their children for conduct that takes place in the family’s home.”

Parent’s rights? In the schools? Heaven forbid!
