Principals of Censorship: The Game


Last week's Supreme Court decision in Morse v. Frederick, which said the First Amendment does not protect student advocacy of illegal drug use, left students uncertain about how far they can go in criticizing the war on drugs. But what about principals who have to worry about First Amendment lawsuits if they get carried away in applying the Court's new rationale for censorship? Students for Sensible Drug Policy presents a game that puts you in the position of a principal struggling to distinguish between "speech that can reasonably be regarded as encouraging illegal drug use" and "speech that can plausibly be interpreted as commenting on any political or social issue."
