I need help answering the question listed in the attached word file. Thank You! 

Give your opinion of the Kuhlmeier (Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier ) case. And also discuss Kincaid v. Gibson. At what age do young people have First Amendment  rights under the law? Does a school principal have the legal right to censor a high school  newspaper that writes an editorial critical of him/her? How are college newspapers any  different? Using Kuhlmeier as your guide, explain how you would rule in the following  case: A Jacksonville high school principal told his journalism students recently that they  could not publish a story, called "Breaking the Rules - Punishment Depends on Who You Are." The story detailed a number of instances where white students were punished much more severely for violating various school rules, ranging from parking in reserved spaces  to smoking tobacco on campus. The article identified students by name. The main theme  of the carefully investigated piece is that nonwhite students were rarely punished for rule  infractions on campus. White students always received stiff punishment, including  suspension from school. Every charge in the story was carefully documented and  absolutely and provably true, with supporting school records. The school paper,  Breathing Space , is published as part of the journalism class. It has won many state  awards and is read by nearly all students and members of the local board of education.  You are the judge and must rule on whether the principal has the legal right to take this  story out. Explain your ruling. Cite precedent. Explain your reasoning.
