Debating Supreme Court Decisions

Book - 2006
Rate this:
On May 13, 1983, the student staff of SPECTRUM, the newspaper at Hazelwood East High School, found that several stories on divorce and student pregnancy had been cut out of the paper completely on orders of the principal. The students felt their rights to free press had been curtailed, so they went to court--ending up in the Supreme Court, which made a decision about the rights of students that still has an effect today. Author Tracy A. Phillips, an attorney, looks at how this complex case found its way to our country's highest court. In addition, the book includes a chapter on how students can conduct a moot court--a mock judicial proceeding that will help them understand the real case.
