    1. Let me give an analogy for you Hudson is like an abortion activist who views all abortions as righteous, no matter how developed the fetus is, and who thinks that anybody who tries to get involved in the abortion process is violating the rights of the woman, be it a boyfriend, a school counselor or a parent This activist also thinks that any woman who decides to keep the baby instead of aborting is an idiot, indoctrinated by anti abortion fanatics.So, let s use this analogy to look at Hudson He [...]

    2. Thank you Anthony C for this great review A powerful and bold look at First Amendment Rights and how those rights limit students then and now A look at how students freedom of expression in public schools is not really a priority Hudson uses chapters in history such as Columbine, as a way to urge individuals they have rights in and out of school Teachers and students will find this an authoritative and valuable look at the First Amendment Index of Cases Anthony C Abington Senior High

    3. Hudson s book seems designed for a high school or underclassmen study of free expression in schools It would be a great tool for that, and is also pretty enjoyable just by itself Hudson lays the groundwork well no previous legal study necessary and connects the dots between the different court interpretations of the First Amendment, showing both the trajectory and current battlefields of student speech All your favorite cases are here, from Pledge of Allegiance refusal to Bong Hits for Jesus.

    4. Good overview of students First Amendment rights or lack thereof I picked this up after finishing Unlearning Liberty, which tackles a similar subject, albeit with a focus on college students Out of the two, I liked Unlearning Liberty slightly better mostly because it delves deeper , but the two combine to make for excellent bookends on the issue.
