    Question: Is it illegal to take freedom of speech from kids in school?

    Answer: School's need to maintain a safe environment for students and teachers. The right to free speech is protected by the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the US Constitution. However, when spoken words are abusive, offensive or the language is unacceptable, your right to free speech may be limited. Fighting words, those that may create a situation in which a fight may occur, are not protected by the Constitution. Students' rights and the need for safe school environment may sometimes come in conflict. In such cases, the courts have determined that students may have their rights limited.

    I personally hate it when people say swear words and things like that, but it is true that the first amendment says that we have freedom of speech , with a few exceptions. We can still say what we want in our schools, but we have to face the consequences. But that's just my opinion.

    I agree that we should have freedom of speech in schools. When Thomas Jefferson and other people wrote the constitution they did not say that it applys to all places but schools were an exception. I think the judicial system is at fault because they side with the schools all the time. We need free speech in the schools so kids feel that they are a citezen of this country.
