    • Bethel School District v. Fraser
      By: Marissa Ehlert
      &
      Samantha Scholler
    • Basic Information
      Matthew Fraser was giving a speech to nominate a fellow student for elective office.
      School thought that he used a graphic sexual metaphor to promote the candidacy.
      He got suspended for two days.
    • Constitutional Issues
      This case affects the First Amendment by not letting Fraser use free speech
      The school said that Fraser used “x-rated” language during his speech.
    • Court Decision
      There were 7 votes for the school.
      There were 2 votes against the school.
      Court decided that the school did not violate the First Amendment rights by punishing Fraser.
    • Our opinion
      We think that Fraser should not be suspended.
      In High School no one cares what your language is.
      The students would have probably for gotten about it if the school had not thought it was rude.
