  • Hazelwood East High School
  • The Case of Hazelwood vs. Kuhlmeier
  • journalism class
  • The Spectrum
  • Cathy Kuhlmeier, Leslie Smart, and Leanne Tippett, juniors at Hazelwood East High School in St. Louis, Missouri, helped write and edit the school paper, the Spectrum, as part of a journalism class.
  • An issue of the paper included articles about the effects of parents divorce on children and teen pregnancy.
  • The school's principal refused to publish the two stories, saying they were too sensitive for younger students and contained too many personal details. 
  • The girls went to court claiming their First Amendment right to freedom of expression had been violated.
  • The Supreme Court ruled against the girls. A school newspaper isn't a public forum where anyone can say anything, but it is a supervised learning experience. They did say however to look carefully before censoring anything to maintain their 1st Amendment right.
  • We  hereby declare that Hazelwood East High School wins this case.
