Scenario 1: Chloe Smith is editor of the Rocky High School Rattler. The Rattler is a school sponsored newspaper published monthly. Content is approved by the faculty sponsor. School board policy defines the school principal as final arbiter when disputes occur between the faculty sponsor and the student editor over content. With the help of her mother, Chloe wrote an editorial arguing the cheerleader tryouts were not conducted fairly. The editorial includes evidence to support Chloe’s point of view. The faculty sponsor refused permission to publish the editorial. Chloe and her mother appeal to the principal.

What are the principal’s best actions and what U.S. Supreme Court cases are most applicable to respond to address this situation?
