C-SPAN: The First Amendment and Student Expression

description

In this video, students discuss first amendment freedoms with Charles Haynes, Senior Scholar at the First Amendment Center. In particular, the discussion focuses on how first amendment freedoms are applied in schools, such as the wearing of hats and other headcoverings.

Is wearing a hat an issue of freedom of speech? What about if the headcovering is dictated by your religion? Should their be a difference?
