In the article, “School Social Media Free Speech Case” (BTW, July 14, 2021) Discusses a Case that rose into action by the public, whether schools should intervene, in students’ social media posts to ensure they are not bullying other students or the school. A high school girl (Brandi Levy) attending a school in Pennsylvania showed her discouragement how she tried out for the cheerleader squad but hadn’t made the varsity team on a Snapchat post. The post was reported and the school announced that Brandi would no longer be able to attend any cheerleading activities. The whole disscusiion came up, why was she punished? If she want on school property while making that most then why is she gettig punished? Brandi Levy was just practicing her 1st Amendment, free speech.What do you think? Was it justice or injustice?
I personally think this was was really a turn, the fact that a student already ina sport will no longer be able to even participate in a sport she had worked hard to get in. I agree with this case that she shouldnt had been punished because again she did not make that post on school property. Though there is the argument where its okay because, the school is just checking/ punishing if any student is bashing or hating on any student or the school itself.
