i think that students should be able to express their self in any way that they would like as long as they are not putting other people in harm. like if some body wants to express them selfs through clothes of drawing they should be able to. i think that schools try to hard to make students be something they are not.
I think we should have freedom
Of expression as much as we want, as long as its not profane, or hurts anybody. When the expression starts to involve others in bad ways is when it needs to end, but we have a right to express what we think.
I think that we should have the same rights inside of school as we do outside. We should be able to express our opinions in not hurtful ways however we choose. As long as it does not cause harm to anyone it should be allowed.
I like turtles
Would you be willing to face the same consequences of your actions that occur outside of school if you freedom of expression offends/hurts others?
I believe that students should be able to express themselves freely as long as it abides by the rules that the school sets down, such as no bullying or harassment, the use of profanity that is thrown towards other students, etc, etc.
I feel that we should have as much freedom of expression as we want, as long as that expression does not overthrow the rules that the school enforces. If such thing were to happen, then you should be given whatever punishment the school has for that expression, such as harassment, bullying, and making a student feel uncomfortable.
I feel that the students in a school should have the same rights about freedom of speech as anywhere else in the country. Our rights shouldn't be taken away just because we are entering an establishment where we are sent to learn. However since we are children and are still learning how laws and freedom in our speech works the punishment should be solely handled by the school like it is now.
Students should not be allowed to say anything in school that would cause another student to feel threatened or too uncomfortable to come to school. We are all forced to go to school by law, so no student should be exposed to any speech that interferes with the rights that both the government and the school policy gives them.
That said, there should also be an anonymous committee or something that can determine how far a students is allowed to push this issue. Teenagers are melodramatic, and shouldn't be allowed to overdo things.
I think that we should be able to have freedom of speech, but can't take advantage of it. We can;t harm other people or offend them by what we say. If students start to break the rules then consequences should occur.
As students and citizens, we should be obligated to uphold our responsibly of treating people the way we would like to be treated. Discussion and expression should be allowed on any level until it is blatantly offending someone to the point where they are visibly uncomfortable.
In other words, you believe what you believe, as will I......but allow un regulated conversation to ensue until it becomes an obvious problem or a prolonged distraction.
As for how to define what an obvious problem is, it's pretty simple to tell when someone is taking offense to what you say, and if ever necessary, partial responsibility should be left up to the person being offended to make it clear that they feel hated.
