Censorship of Religious Expression at Graduation Ceremonies...Here We Go Again

Author: Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Jeremy Tedesco

A.M. v. Taconic Hills Central School District involves a public school’s decision to censor the free speech of the 8th Grade Class Co-President at a graduation ceremony. Why? She planned to positively encourage her classmates by paraphrasing a few verses from the Bible. When the Second Circuit upheld the school’s determination that the student couldn’t include a religious message at the end of her speech, we could not stand idly by, so we took the case.
