Law & society : recent scholarship


Part of a series on the interactive relationships between law and society, this small volume explores issues of freedom of speech and expression relating to students in public schools. Bracketing the discussion between the Supreme Court's affirmation of student political expression rights in the Vietnam era Tinker vs. Des Moines Ind. Sch. Dist. and the recent decision that student in Alaska were not protected in waving a "Bong Hits For Jesus" sign at a school function, the work explores the limits on free speech imposed in the details of Tinker and recent development in the scope of student protected free speech. Ramey is a lawyer and educator working in Kansas City Missouri.
