This webinar will address a variety of issues involving political speech and related activities in the schools. Do students have a right to express their political opinions on their clothing, to distribute political literature, or to comment on their political beliefs at school? Do employees have a right to engage in political speech while on the job, especially in the classroom? When may school facilities be used by outside groups for election or political purposes? The webinar will also address a state law that forbids school boards from using public funds to endorse or oppose a referendum, election, or a particular candidate for elective office.
