It can be concluded Teachers are held to a higher standard then non-educational occupations, as “The Supreme Court has acknowledged that a “teacher serves as a role model for…students exerting a subtle but important influence over their perceptions and values” (Cambron-McCabe, McCathy & Eckes, 2014, p. 251). Teachers must be conscious to the ideology their actions, words, and mannerism can directly influence their student audience. The 1st amendment freedom of expression offers protection to teachers as it applies to the following clause, “Public employees’ comments on matters of public concern are protected expression if they are made as a citizen and not pursuant to official job duties” (Cambron-McCabe, McCathy & Eckes, 2014, p. 233).
Barbara Johns, the Sixteen Year-old Girl Whose Voice was Heard Sixty-two years ago, the Supreme Court ruled the “separate but equal” doctrine unconstitutional. The decision from the Plessy v.

Mo Hock Ke Lok Po v. Stainback 1944 Mo Hock Ke Lok Po v. Stainback (1944) was another court case that gave parents the right to have their children taught in a foreign language. This was a significant victory because it implied that parents had a voice in regards to the
Overall Assessment – who will win the case? Based on the presented facts, it is the opinion of this writer that the educator’s termination will be upheld and the defendant will win the case. Using Fowler v. Board of Education, 819 F. 2d 657 (1987), as precedent, the actions of the plaintiff caused a substantial disruption to the learning environment. While educators are afforded the right of academic freedom “to speak freely about their subjects, to experiment with new ideas, and to select appropriate teaching materials and methods” (Hillman & Trevaskis, 2014, p. 7-12), one should err on the side of caution, as “great deference is paid to the local board of education since they have the power to determine the curriculum and the materials used”
Cleveland Board of Education v. Loudermill, 470 U.S. 532 (1985) Facts: James Loudermill was dismissed from his job as a security guard for the Cleveland Board of Education for failing to disclose a prior felony conviction on his application. Loudermill, a classified civil servant under Ohio law, filed an appeal with the civil service commission stating Ohio statue provided he could only be terminated for cause; therefore, he was entitled to administrative review of his dismissal. Nine months after the appeal was filed the Commission upheld his termination. Loudermill filed suit in the District Court for the Northern District of Ohio alleging the Ohio statute that provided for administrative review of a discharged public employee was unconstitutional on its face because it did not provide an opportunity for the employee to respond to the charges against him prior to being discharged. The suit also alleged the Ohio statute was unconstitutional as applied because he was not given a prompt appeal hearing by the Civil Service

I remember learning about the Everson v. Board of Education case in school. We talked about it for a while just because it had to deal with students. The issue was that a tax funded school district provided repayment to parents of public and private schooled kids taking the public transport system to school.
Chris Del Valle October.23.2014 Supreme Court Paper D-Block Brown vs. Board of Education The Declaration of Independence stated that “all men are created equal.” But before the civil war, America didn’t seem to abide by this since there was slavery. In 1865 slavery ended, and the 13th Amendment was created. Then in 1868 the fourteenth amendment was created, which made the rights of released slaves stronger. It says that nobody will have their right to “due process of law”, and “equal protection of the law” taken away. Later in 1870, the 15th amendment was passed stating that no state can prohibit someone from voting due to race.

Martin Luther king Jr. once stated "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" indicating that if justice is not served injustice will continue. There are several cases that exude injustice such as Dred Scott vs. Sanford, Plessy vs. Ferguson, and Brown vs. Board of Education. These cases all deal with different topics including political, civil rights, and education. That being said many of these Supreme Court cases changed equality in their communities, thus impacting the nation.
Board of Eduation. The issue of concern was whether New Jersey could reimburse transportation costs to the parents of schoolchildren, at both public and nonpublic schools. As a heavy assortment of the nonpublic schools were catholic, an anti-Catholic organization within the state challenged the program, arguing it violated the Establishment clause. In a 5-4 ruling, the court upheld the law, stating that transportation could be considered a child benefit. However, Everson’s legacy goes far beyond the upholding of New Jersey’s reimbursement program because it was the first case of its kind whose opinion dealt directly with the Establishment clause. Furthermore, the author of the majority opinion, Justice Hugo Black, invoked the Jeffersonian metaphor of “a wall of separation,” writing, “In the words of Jefferson, the clause against establishment of religion by law was intended to erect a wall of separation between church and state.” Based upon this line of thinking alone, it is difficult to see why the court ruled in favor of the defendant. However, Justice Black also considered the requirements of Free Exercise clause, claiming that for the state to instate “public welfare legislation,” and then hampering citizens from receiving it on grounds of their religious beliefs would be a violation of the free exercise of the religion. Justice Black’s consideration of the Establishment clause in Everson therefore serves as demarcation point in the judicial history of education. Post-Everson, writes Hubert Morken, “many judicial challenges to educational policy have been couched in church/state
Brown v. Board of Education is a historically known United States Supreme Court case in which the court declared state laws that established separate public schools for black and white students to be unconstitutional. This case completely contradicted and overturned a previous, also historically known case, Plessy v. Ferguson, which was passed nearly 50 years prior. Between the time of Brown vs. the Board of Education and the Mississippi Freedom Summer of 1964 various organizations employed a variety of tactics for integration including but not limited to non-violent vs. violent means and utilizing their own distinct levels of influence within existing institutions and government. While the non-violent tactics are often most cited as the reason for change, it is in fact the threat of vengeful violence by the increasingly uniting civil rights organizations and public reaction to the violence of whites against groups merely fighting for the right to participate in the ideal that is America that truly affected change, culminating in the Mississippi Freedom Summer of 1964.
Legal school segregation in the South came into action in 1896, as a result of the Jim Crow Laws. These laws were derived from white Americans in an effort to ensure that blacks and whites lived separate lives. This physical divide formed an unequal gap in education, opportunity and lifestyle for African Americans. Known as Black Monday, the Brown v. Board of Education case was a milestone in American history that transformed the United States into an equal multiracial nation. The Brown v. Board of Education case ended segregation in public schools in the United States, allowing African American students to attend white only public schools and inspiring more African Americans to fight for complete desegregation in public areas, transportation and universities.
One of the biggest turning points for African Americans was the case of Brown vs the Board of Education. In the 1950’s, public places were segregated, including the local schools. There were all white-school and all-black schools. During this time, many African American children had to be bused out of their neighborhoods or had to walk several miles just to attend their specific school. Brown vs the Board of Education was not just about equality, this case was the starting point of many American realizing that separate but equal was not effective. This case was the catalyst to equality when using restrooms and water fountains, essentially making all men/women equal, regardless of race, creed, or color.
