About time the 1st Amendment were upheld by the USSC.
Might be hope left yet.

While the little whiny brat has a right to say what she wants off school grounds. The school also has a right to protect its public image and limit the little whiny brats association with, and representation of the school.

But lets us take this to the next level.
Say YOU own a Small shop.
You hire a teenager to stock the shelves that turns out to be a whiny pain in the A$$. That whiny brat makes a video slamming you and your shop while he still working there.

Would you fire him?

HELL YES, you know you would.

#3 Given the horrendous job the public gummint schools do, anything that limits their authority is A-OK with me.

#4 NN2N1, no, the school absolutely does not have a right to limit any child's expression of dissatisfaction with their institution, regardless of how bad it makes them look, especially when they are expressing their thoughts entirely off-campus and through non-school sponsored activities. And as for your example of firing somebody who speaks badly about your business -- totally different context. First of all, your employees aren't LEGALLY REQUIRED to attend your place of employment (something that seems to escape everybody's attention when they call for limiting children's freedom of speech relating to government schools). Second of all, you have a vested profit motive in making sure that your institution remains in the good graces of the public. Frankly, public schools don't, considering that they're funded by involuntary taxation.
