Webinar Description



“It can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate.” Justice Abe Fortas in Tinker v. Des Moines, USSC 393 U.S. 503 (1969)

What happens at schools has long been a source of controversy in America: Armbands to protest the Vietnam War. Drug testing of student-athletes. Affirmative Action. Banning books. And so much more... Mental and behavioral health professionals should adhere to an ethical principle of challenging injustice. We all should know the legal and ethical issues that define controversy in school policy, so that we can be effective advocates for justice. This workshop explores the rights of students, their parents, and teachers/school administrators through an examination of international, federal, state and local law. Tools for proactive and responsive policy advocate are provided and exercised.
