Freedom of Speech
|Posted By: aline pawlak on August 15, 2002|
|Freedom of Speech allows a person to express a thought without government involvement. In each of the sited examples, each person stated their opinion, knowing the risk of the institution in which it was stated. |
Yes indeed, every person is entitled to speak freely of their opinion, however, each person (especially an educator) holds a responsibility.
Now, these people may have been reprimanded, however, they were not imprisoned, executed or berated.
It is not our country's duty to allow each individual to be a spoiled brat. So, what’s not free about this, again?
