The principle of the school deleted 2 pages of the newspaper on articles about divorce and teen pregnancy Ruling of the suprememe court
" . . . educators do not offend the First Amendment by exercising editorial control over the style and content of student speech in school-sponsored expressive activities so long as their actions are reasonably related to legitimate pedagogical concerns." Judge White- speaking on behalf of the whole OPinion of the Majority:
"The rights of the students are not automatically coextensive to that of adults in other settings"

Justice White,

Justice Rehnquist,

Justice Stevens,

Justice O'Connor,

and Justice Scalia

Justice Brennan

Justice Marshall, and

Justice Blackmun Opinion of the Minority:
"the newspaper they were to publish, was a forum established to give students an opportunity to express their views while gaining an appreciation of their rights and responsibilities under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution"

Educators did not offend the First Amendment by exercising editorial control over the content of student speech so long as their actions were "reasonably related to legitimate pedagogical concerns."
