Unfortunely, he ended up taking other articles out as well. The articles in
question talked about teen pregnancy within the school and divorce. These
articles stated that they students’ names were withheld but students and
faculty figured it out and the other article talked about divorce and students
were bad mouthing their parents.

            I chose to support majority opinion
on the case. For me, the principal and the school has the right to censor
articles, especially if it causes a distraction within the student body and
also with the faculty. The articles in question did violate students right to
privacy, especially when they did a poor job of hidden their identity and it
also violated the parents’ rights because they did not give consent to the
interview. On the other side I get where the students are coming from and
wanting to use the First Amendment for freedom of speech but sometimes when a
story causes problems within the school then to me the principal did his job by
protecting the students.

            In this case, I favor a loose
interpretation for Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier case. To me students have the right
to express their opinion but it is necessary to place restrictions to avoid
mayhem in the student body. The school was protecting all of the students in
the school and their right to protect their identity and the interest of the
majority. Newspapers are a form of public expression but in a school
environment the principal and the faculty have the right to edit a paper as
needed.

 

            The factors that influenced my
decision in the case was that students who were being interviewed about teen
pregnancies in school and divorce parents thought that their identity would be
concealed but it was done very poorly and the principal recognize that and knew
that he needed to pull the articles to protect the students, parents, and the
school from libel action.

 

 

T.M.

v State of Florida

            I, Stefanie Dominguez express my
opinion for the minority rule in the case of T.M. v State of Florida.

            When reading this case, it seems
more about a situation that the principal of the case. To me the curfew that
has been set in place is very extreme. There are a lot of reasons why a
teenager would be out past eleven o’clock at night. Reasons could be work, a
party, group study for school, school sport or event and there could have been
an emergency with a family member. Parents do allow their teenagers out past
eleven o’clock and parents should be the one to enforce curfew for their
teenagers and not the law.

            This case I lean toward a strict
interpretation of the law because of our First Amendment right to have the
freedom to assembly in a public place. As teenagers we should have equal rights
just like adults but sometimes parents/guardians step in to be the ones to
enforce this right onto teenagers. To teach us to do the right thing. I do
understand where law enforcement officers are coming from. Especially when we
have a lot of teenagers getting in trouble by getting in trouble like stealing
cars and unfortunely a lot have died in high speed chase but parents are the
ones responsible for us and they should be the ones to enforce the curfew.

            The factors in this case helped me
with my decision and my interpretation was the First Amendment. Everyone has
the right to do what they want within reason and by the law. For parents when
their teenagers are able to drive they are asked to help the families with
their siblings, to go to work, or if there is an emergency but with this strict
curfew the teenager would not be able to help their family.
