    B. Tinker v. Des Moines (1969)

    In 1965, a community group in Des Moines, Iowa held a protest against the Vietnam War. As part of the protest, people wore black armbands with peace symbols on them. Several students decided they would wear the armbands to school. In writing the decision in the Tinker case, Justice Abe Fortas wrote, "It can hardly be argued that either students or teachers shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate." The majority of justices on the case believe that the Constitution also protects the rights of students while in school.
