"In our system, students may not be regarded as closed-circuit recipients of only that which the State chooses to communicate. They may not be confined to the expression of those sentiments that are officially approved....Students are entitled to freedom of expression of their views."

-- Robert S. Peck [Unfettered Press, Constitutional Protection]

"First Amendment rights, applied in light of the special characteristics of the school environment, are available to teachers and students. It can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate. This has been the unmistakable holding of this Court for almost 50 years."

-- Tinker v. Des Moines School District [393 U.S. 503 (1969)]

"Sunshine is the best disinfectant."

-- Judge Brandis
