The Online, Off-Campus Speech Rights of Public School Students | The Case of the Cursing Cheerleader

In 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court for the first time addressed the online, off-campus First Amendment speech rights of public school students in Mahanoy Area School District v. B.L. Known as the “Case of the Cursing Cheerleader,” the Court in Mahanoy failed to create bright-line rules regarding when schools may permissibly punish students in the digital era for their texts, messages and posts on social media platforms. Professor Calvert will address the Mahanoy decision and place it within the larger context of the Court’s four prior rulings directly affecting the speech rights of public high school and middle school students.
