Inappropriate Signage at School Read the scenario and then test your knowledge of the law
A high school decided to excuse students from class to go outside to watch the Olympic torch relay run past their school. Teachers and school administrators monitored the students. As the torchbearers and camera crews passed a group of students, the students opened up a fourteen foot banner that said “BONG HITS 4 JESUS.” The principal demanded that the banner be taken down immediately but one student refused. The principal then confiscated the banner and suspended the student, explaining that she did so because the banner promoted illegal drug use in violation of school policy. The student claimed that he made the sign just to get on TV and did not care what it said.
