Two Jehovah's Witness school children, ages 10 and 12, Lillian and William Gobitis were suspended from school for refusing to salute the American flag in Minersville, Pennsylvania. The Gobitis children were Jehovah's Witnesses; they believed that such a gesture of respect for the flag was forbidden by their religion. Their parents claimed that the children's' due process rights had been violated by the school district, they believed their children had the right to refuse to say the Pledge. In an 8-to-1 decision, the Court upheld the mandatory flag salute The Court held that the state's interest in "national cohesion" was "inferior to none in the hierarchy of legal values" and that national unity was the idea of national security. The court found that the flag was an important symbol of national unity and that school children should respect and salute

This was established in both Cedar Rapids Community School District v. Garret, 119 S.Ct. 992, (U.S. 1999); and Roncker v. Walter, 700 F.2d 1058, (1983). In the Cedar Rapids case, the student was dependent on a ventilator, and his mother asked the school to provide the necessary health service for him to attend school. The school district argued that their responsibilities did not include the necessary one on one nursing services that would be required throughout the day. The court determined that the school could not depend on the financial aspect to define related service or to exclude medical service.
Tavion’s father also put on the note that he was divorced and that his mother was not allowed access to their son’s medical records for any reason. Tavion’s mother showed up at Methodist Hospital that following weekend wanting copies of her son’s medical records and that she suspected that Tavion’s father was physically abusing their son. Tavion’s mother’s statement of suspecting that the father was physically abusing the son is sufficient to warrant a further investigation by the hospital. If the documentation was done fully and clearly and with the necessary detail than those officials that are performing the investigation will see that the story the father told them about Tavion and how he got hurt did not make sense, and that they were suspecting that it was physical abuse as well. And the parents, regardless of relationship status, should have the right to access their child’s records, especially when my other patient is suspected of child abuse.

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.
