Tinker V Des Moines

Tinker V Des Moines - Tinker v. Des Moines: The BackgroundThe Tinker v. Des Moines court case is one of the most groundbreaking trials in the history of the United States.
Megan Teeling's insight:

This case was when students got suspended for wearing wristbands to school in order to show to others their stance when it came to American soilders in the Veitnam war. The principle told them they couldn't come back until they removed the wristbands. By demanding the removal of the wristbands, he broke the 1st ammendment and the 14th ammendments. The freedom of speech and the freedom of expression. It went all the way to the Supreme Court and they ruled in favor of the students saying they could indeed wear them to school.

Tinker v. Des Moines School District (1969)

Megan Teeling's insight:

The courts decision on the case on whether or not students could wear wristbands to school stating their beliefs on a specific subject was a 7-2. It was a clear choice that they could wear those and by telling them they couldn't was inclifting on their first ammendment rights. They said their is a thin line between the school rules and the government rules, but this was one thing the school couldn't control.
