A high school girl's Snap got her suspended from cheerleading for one year. That Snap and suspension will now come before the Supreme Court. Join The Podvocate for a series of discussions on where students' free speech rights end and schools' disciplinary authority begins. In this episode, Francisco Negron, chief legal counsel of the National School Board Association and chief author of an amicus brief arguing in favor of the school district’s right to discipline B.L. for her conduct, shares why it’s critical for schools to be empowered to discipline student speech that affects students and the campus community. Francisco directs the NSBA’s nationally-recognized Legal Advocacy Program, which files more amicus briefs in the Supreme Court and in federal and state appellate courts across the country each year than all national education associations combined.
