The Freedom of Speech on High

Lyall Swim, Sutherland’s director of operations, participated as a panelist in a Youth Freedom Forum on Wednesday, March 28 to discuss the freedom of speech on high school campuses.  Swim was among four panelists addressing a variety of questions concerning the First Amendment and the role it plays in public schools.  He said, “It‘s important to remember that when we‘re talking about government schools, we‘re talking about a limited public forum and therefore there is a degree to which the schools can and should limit speech.”
