First Amendment Rights
The Supreme Court has held that, "it can hardly be said that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech and expression at the schoolhouse gate."
While public schools can place some limits on teachers' and students' right to express their views, schools cannot bar ideas with which they disagree. If your school district has limited your child's right to voice his or her views, or if you are a teacher or parent who has suffered retaliation or adverse consequences for speaking up, consider a consultation with Asher, Gaughran LLP.
We are experienced federal court practitioners who have successfully litigated on behalf of clients who were deprived of their constitutional rights by school districts.
