Policing Free Speech
October 15, 2020 | 4:00 PM
Virtual Panel brought to you by EdNC
Free speech is obviously guaranteed by the First Amendment, but does that safeguard extend into schools and government? Are there legal and ethical limitations on the rights of teachers, students, administrators, and policymakers to speak and think freely in their work as public servants? If so, who decides what those boundaries might be and are they consistent across North Carolina? Moreover, what intrinsic value does the free, transparent, and open exchange of ideas and information provide organizations — both public and private — that face the challenges of a rapidly changing world? These are the types of questions that will be discussed as part of EdNC’s virtual panel on the policing of language in education and beyond.
