According to the National Coalition Against Censorship, ” The First Amendment safeguards the right of every American to speak and think freely. Its promise of freedom of expression and inquiry is important to educators and students. The First Amendment protects educators’ ability to exercise their judgment in accordance with professional standards and provides the latitude to create learning environments that effectively help young people acquire the knowledge and skills needed to become productive, self-sufficient, and contributing members of society.”
As all Americans are disappointed in how media and government have been unable to provide a free and fair internet playing, teachers and educators find it difficult in their world together to be honest, open and able to speak up and express themselves without censorship and repercussions.
