Prof. Steve Woolpert talks to KCBS about Supreme Court ruling in favor of free speech for students

KCBS radio interviewed Prof. Woolpert on the Supreme Court' ruling that public school students retain broader free-speech protections when they are away from campus than they do in school settings. Woolpert noted that among the Court's reasons for upholding the student's profanity-laden complaint on Snapchat is that schools have an interest in protecting unpopular expression "because America's public schools are the nurseries of democracy."
