Supreme Court has sent mixed messages. T EENS MAY HAVE MORE rights than they think — but not as many as they want. The Supreme Court, which usually has the final word on the meaning of the Bill of Rights, has been ambivalent on the question, struggling to balance school and parental authority with the rights of individuals — no matter what age. The high-water mark for student rights was in 1969, when the high court said Des Moines high school students could not be suspended for wearing anti-war armbands. "It can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights ... at the schoolhouse gate," the court proclaimed. Since then the court has pulled back, giving school and government officials more power to regulate students' lives. The court has OK'd: • Censorship of school newspapers. • Police searches of lockers of students suspected of violating the law. • Random drug testing of athletes. In the area of religious freedom, the court has delivered mixed messages: Nothing prevents individual student prayer, but public graduation ceremonies cannot include formal prayers or benedictions. Partly because the court has been ambivalent, school texts are outdated and students often don't know what they can and can't do. "Schools do a dismal job of teaching students what the First Amendment is all about," says Mark Goodman of the Student Press Law Center. When considering restrictions on student rights, judges and government officials should consider "the kind of lesson that action teaches our students," warns Robert O'Neil of the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression, in Charlottesville, Va. O'Neil has a book just out, Free Speech in tin' College Community, urging caution in limiting student rights. — Tony Mauro Teens selected for honors F OUR STUDENTS who participated in the 10th annual USA WEEKEND teen report were chosen for the following honors: • USA WEEKEND student editor.
