3 Des Moines School District The School thought they were correct for creating the rule to stop the wearing of the armbands by students. Their argument was that a public school is the place to learn and not protest. The school stated the importance in our public school is discipline and no student should interfere with the education of our students.

The Tinker Argument The Tinkers said their was no disturbance in the school in result of warring the armbands and learning in the class room was not disturbed.

4 The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Tinkers in this case. They ruled 7-2 against the school in favor of the students in the case. Official Opinion The courts opinion stated that school officials had comprehensive authority to set rules in the school, but it had to be done consistent with the first amendment rights to students and teachers Official Opinion The courts opinion stated that school officials had comprehensive authority to set rules in the school, but it had to be done consistent with the first amendment rights to students and teachers Dissenting Opinion Justice Hugo Black said the conduct had been disruptive and that school officials had the right to control their classrooms.

5 Waugh v. Mississippi University- Court ruled that the states control institutions they established and that the state can prohibit things it believes distracts from the purpose which the state desired to exist. Meyer v. Nebraska- Court ruled that laws which interfered with the liberty of teacher, student, and parent were unconstitutional. Cox v. Louisiana- the Supreme Court ruled that the rights of free speech and assembly do not mean that anyone with opinions or beliefs to express may address a group at any public place and at any time. Hammond v. South Carolina State College- it was ruled that people in public schools are protected by constitutional rights.

6 We do not agree with Des Moines school district. The school should not have suspended them before the kids even entered the school building. We believe there was no reason to outlaw the armbands, because they were not causing any disruption. It states in the First Amendment that there is a freedom of speech, and the students have the right to practice freedom of speech.
