The First Amendment Law Review hosted a 25 Year Retrospective of the Hazelwood decision.
It’s been nearly 25 years since the Supreme Court rolled back students’ First Amendment rights in Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier. Join experts from the fields of law, education and journalism for a conversation about how the rise in censorship — including the recent leap of Hazelwood from K-12 schools to college campuses — has affected young people’s civic readiness. Has the pendulum swung too far toward school authority, and how can schools foster meaningful civic participation from their students in a Hazelwood world?
