Chapter 3 Questions
Answer the following questions about the handouts. Single spaced, you do not need to re type the question, and you should answer in 2-3 paragraphs, with supporting evidence.
- Book Censorship. If the Supreme Court ruled in Board of Education v. Pico that book censorship is wrong (m’kay), then how is it that many books have been banned from public schools and libraries? You may have to research this one, and there is a loophole in this ruling that still allows for book censorship. Cite the sources that you use in your answer, please.
- Papish v. Board of Curators of the University of Missouri. Why did the school believe there were grounds for expulsion? What does the Civil Rights Act of 1871 have to do with the student’s defense? Why did the Eighth Circuit Court uphold the expulsion? Why did the Supreme Court reverse?
- Minnesota Supreme Court Sides with University on Punishment for Facebook Posts. What are the facts of the case? What does Hazelwood v. Kuhlmeier have to do with the case? What did the Court rule? What precedent was set in this ruling?
