The siblings, and Echardt were asked to remove the armbands; consequences for failing to do so were suspension until after New Year’s Day, and confiscation of the armbands. Even knowing the consequences the brother and sister team did not care, nor did Christopher, they wore the black bands anyway and were eventually sent home.

Legal concepts- The two amendments in question are (the right to freedom of speech granted by) the First Amendment, and the (right to be equally protected under the law given to us by) the Fourteenth Amendment.
Although many people are against that, others have felt it was right even necessary. Yes teens make mistakes and do unnecessary things, but treating them as adult’s isn’t the right thing to do.

Regardless of the policy, the Tinkers wore their armbands to school on December 16 and Eckhardt wore his armband the next day. The armbands didn’t cause a disturbance, but the three students were still suspended and asked not to return to school until they removed the armbands. Even though the students returned to school after the protest was over, they had filed a lawsuit in the federal district court. They asked the courts to overrule the school’s decision to punish the students for wearing the armbands.

With the unexpected disruption of the school day, the Board of Trustees had no other options but to come together and create a plan of action to neutralize the situation. “It was at this meeting that Spilman [chair of Board of Trustees] supposedly said, ‘Deaf people are not able to function in a hearing world’” (Jankowski).

The Supreme Court ruled in the 1943 case West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette that school officials violated the First and Fourteenth Amendments when they punished students and their parents for the students’ refusal to salute to the American flag. During the 1940s, the United States Supreme Court discussed two cases in which the majority disputed with the rights of individuals. In the first case, Minersville School District v. Gobitis, the court ruled that all students had to recite the Pledge of Allegiance while saluting the flag in the classroom. However, the Supreme Court faced the same issue three years later in West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette and was against a state school order that public school students must participate in a patriotic ceremony. The issues of the Barnette case stemmed from the decision of the Minersville School District v. Gobitis case.
