Teaching About Being an Oppressor

A captivating article by Steven P. Shacht inspired by “Unpacking the Knapsack” by Peggy McIntosh. Schacht discusses how he is over privileged because, as a white male, he automatically gets a variety of benefits that women, people of color, lower classes, etc. need to work hard for.

Read this article if you have doubts that racism, sexism, classism, etc. still exist.

How To Tell People They Sound Racist

Jay Smooth is brief and refreshing in his tips, especially in this video. He essentially says that when a person says something racist (or ablest, heterosexist, classist, etc.) you need to focus on the hurtful comment, not any reflection it may have on the speaker’s personality.

Free Speech Rights of Students

  • BETHEL SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 403 ET AL. v. FRASER, A MINOR, ET AL.
    In Bethel, the Court upheld the right of Washington state high school administrators to discipline a student for delivering a campaign speech at a school assembly that was loaded with sexual innuendo.  The Court expressed the view that administrators ought to have the discretion to punish student speech that violates school rules and has the tendency to interfere with legitimate educational and disciplinary objectives.
  • HAZELWOOD SCHOOL DISTRICT ET AL. v. KUHLMEIER ET AL.
    In Hazelwood, the Court relied heavily on Bethel to uphold the right of school administrators to censor materials in a student-edited school paper that concerned sensitive subjects such as student pregnancy, or that could be considered an invasion of privacy.
  • PAPISH v. BOARD OF CURATORS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI ET AL.
    Papish considered the decision of the University of Missouri to expel a journalism student who distributed a controversial leaflet (including four-letter words and a cartoon showing the Statue of Liberty being raped) on campus.  The Court held the expulsion violated Papish’s First Amendment rights.
  • TINKER ET AL. v. DES MOINES INDEPENDENT COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT ET AL.
    In Tinker, perhaps the best known of the Court’s student speech cases, the Court found that the First Amendment protected the right of high school students to wear black armbands in a public high school, as a form of protest against the Viet Nam War.  The Court ruled that this symbolic speech–“closely akin to pure speech”–could only be prohibited by school administrators if they could show that it would cause a substantial disruption of the school’s educational mission.
