"High school students something to cheer about back in June a victory for the First Amendment rights at students when they post on social media By an 8 to one vote the court ruled that a public high school violated the constitution when it punished a 14 year old cheerleader for a profane SnapChat rant The justice said school officials have less power to regulate what students say when they're off campus And during oral argument some of the justices suggested the school went too far in punishing the student with a yearlong suspension from the team You're punishing her here because she went on the Internet and cursed and used a curse word related to what to her unhappiness with the school and cheering right She's competitive She cares She blew off steam like millions of other kids have on their disappointed about being cut from the high school team or not being in the starting lineup But rather narrow decision was written by justice Stephen breyer who had expressed concern about a broad ruling by the court Joining me is First Amendment expert Eugene folic a professor at UCLA law school So Eugene how much of a win is this for student speech Considerable Probably not complete but considerable The Supreme Court didn't denounce a clear rule that says off campus speech is categorically protected or even off campus speeches categorically protected unless if they are true threat of violence or something like that Nonetheless the court made clear that generally speaking off campus political and religious speech is protected even if it might cause some tension or some disruption on campus And it defined political speech quite broadly So for example the kind of vulgar and non substantive criticism of the cheerleading program that was involved in this particular statement by the student that too the court said is a form of political speech because it is criticism of the school So that's quite a significant form of protection And I expect that in a lot of off campus speech cases this case is going to be dispositive to the point that perhaps there won't even need to be any litigation So the court stopped short of saying there's a categorical rule for off campus speech Did they give schools enough guidance for what is and what isn't permissible No they did not give the school much guidance They did set this precedent this benchmark So speech that's kind of like this future school district and their lawyers will probably realize you know if the speech is quite like this then there's not going to be much of a distinction we can draw But if a speech is somewhat different let me cause it somewhat more disruption on campus or maybe is more personalized to particular students or even particular teachers You know in principle a court might reach a different result You know this is the way things work often in law right Sometimes a court says here is a rule But sometimes the court just says here's our decision and we're going to leave it to future courts to discern a rule from this case and from other such cases That's kind of a common law sort of approach and one that just as brier who is the author of this opinion is often quite sympathetic towards So it will be mostly for lower courts to develop further case law on the subject But I'm sure they'll take very seriously This decision and will recognize that off campus speech should usually generally speaking be viewed as more protected And tell us what justice breyer said about the vulgarity of the speech here We knew that on campus schools have pretty substantial authority to punish speech because of the vulgar It's just kind of a way of teaching manners and teaching how to engage in substantive polite argument That's the bethel school district versus Fraser case But when it comes to off campus speech just as briar's opinion suggested that basically the vulgarity of the message is not going to be particularly relevant especially when the message is political and some measure Justice breyer said he was frightened to write a standard in oral arguments Does that show in the narrowness of this opinion Well yeah I think that often just as briar likes to have kind of flexible balancing tests rather than clear sharp categorical rules Different justices of different view just to Scalia famously was much more in favor of a clearer rules So yeah I think just as briar got what he wanted which is a relatively flexible approach But one that nonetheless offers considerable protection to students So now lower courts are going to have to grapple with this flexible approach I do think lower courts are going to be seeing a lot of these cases And some of them I think are going to involve I hate to use the term bullying because it's so ill defined But the presumably would be some cases where there is basically personal cruelty posted online about fellow classmates Another example might be whether there's something that is personally insulting to a teacher And perhaps an oblast substantive point or let's say something to teach about calling the teacher ugly or spreading rumors about their sex life or something like that So that might be a question that will arrive So there are going to be lots of cases that involve on campus speech It's not like on campus speeches entirely unprotected And much of the reasoning of the court suggests that indeed the tinker standard needs to be often read in a speech protective way even on campus So you may recall some years ago there was this case called bariano from the 9th circuit which involved students who were wearing American flag t-shirts And this was on Cinco de Mayo and the Mexican American students viewed that as insulting sort of threatened that there might be some fights as a result that school said you can't wear American flag here and think.

"Minds. Flynn. We're gonna have a much more extensive discussion and Mohr sound from some of the highlights and and some of the lowlights from from the National Convention at 10 30, But just initially. What was your reaction to last night? I thought it was ironic is what I'll say the entire Time, which I understand, by the way is talking about some of the bad that's going on in our country right now. And how if Biden were in office, this is what would happen bad. But all of this as we are watching a virtual RNC and I thought to myself, Ursula, why are we watching a virtual RNC? Oh, that's right, because the president of the United States, said the The Corona virus was a democratic hoax. That's number one and number two. All of the things that are going on bad in our country these air currently now and so it's like, Hey, We are going to build the economy again, just like we did before, But we have to have another chance to feel the economy, so I just stopped that. But if there's one thing take away, I'll say I thought they did a good job. I thought it was less twitchy in Yeah, like production. Wise production religions, for sure. Yeah, Yeah, The production was great. I'll give him credit for that. I give Don Donald Trump Jr It looks pretty good with the beer. I'm like, Hey, I like his look. Okay, well, uh, I did not think it was this optimistic as we were promised. I think there needs to be a lot of fact checking. I think there was a new attempt to try to change history. Um, the I thought certain things were effective, including some of the speakers they had, including Vernon Jones, who you just heard from, and Nikki Haley and the senator Tim Scott. Tim's gun. Yeah. Tim Scott. Yeah, I thought they were effective. But I'll tell you who was not effective and made me just really. I had actually turned the volume down on my TV because someone was shouting. We'll talk about that at 10 30. It was it was and I have, you know, I'm a girl's girl. I am someone I am all about Women empowerment, but this was like over the top. Okay. So, with school starting soon and almost all district doing full, remote learning, the Washington State parent Teacher Association says you can expect it to be a very bumpy ride three months of summer that we've had Still hasn't been enough time not to adequately provide for all of the changes that would need to be made in order to virtualized this effectively, so it's still not going to be happy. That's an understatement. I know so many parents were still scrambling to make childcare arrangements or are considering having to give up their jobs. But you shared something this morning G from one of the school district that you saw. Their schedule. What stood out to you? I I think what stands out to me is just how busy they're going to be. Here's a Here's a sample schedule. This was down in the Bethel School district. I got the This is elementary school Evergreen Elementary School. I saw It was 99 o'clock a m to 9 40 live zoom 9 40 did not to 10 10 live Zoom 10 10 to 10 25 Independent Recess on Benny goes only get lunch 11 40, then 12 35 to 1 20 lives Zoom 12 1 21 50 English language.

Oh, and we have an update on our wishes in flight mileage drive. Thank you so very much for donating your unused airline miles today. We're above eight million miles. That's incredible.

And you know, studies show the average person who participates in frequent flyer programs loses hundreds of dollars because they never use the miles in their account. So why don't you donate him? Almost. Connie Thompson tells us why airlines actually like it When you donate miles to charity. The truth is a lot of us are sitting on airline rewards Miles that won't get used. Been a persistent trend even before the pandemic. I think that a lot of people fail to realize that these points and miles really have true value. How much value roughly 1 to 2 cents per mile. That's money down the drain. If your points have an expiration date, and you don't use them. These programs air really a form of currency if you will, and the airline basically has the right, Tio. Change the value pretty much at will. So really, The key here is demonstrating some activity and bankrate dot coms, Ted Rothman says, donating your miles can count as an activity that keeps your miles from expiring. When you donate miles. It restarts the clock of activity, So that's gonna be true for the miles you're giving as well as the remaining miles in your account bank rates, latest survey says On this is before the pandemic. They found that nearly half of us who participate in travel rewards programs admit that we lose points because we let them expire. And at the same time you know what happens. We keep spending money supporting the specific credit cards specific airlines so that we can build up those reward points that we end up. Not using And that's come most.

There are some sections right on schedule like tear down of old roads and geo foam removal, or the building of new walls and embankments, and there are some that are ahead of schedule. But that doesn't mean we might see the tunnel opened before February fourth the state DOT's. Dave sour says the big piece is laying down the road pavement, which takes fourteen days to cure for that next week. We're still fourteen days there before you could even put trucks on end of next week. We would know when the curious finished, and when it's going to be strike, we could certainly put down temporary striping, if we have some bad weather the last few days, the biggest worry about a potential traffic. Nightmare was that one incident like the late morning overturned dirt truck on northbound five would cause a ripple effect but wash dots. Chris Olsen says they're ready. We normally have somewhere around ten of our incident response teams during our. P commute times during this closure. We have shifted some of them. So we've got to additional and then three that we've shifted from the weekend. So we've got about fifteen out there roaming around during our peaking at times and clearing. Those blocking incidents quickly is one of the ways to keep the Seattle. Squeeze relatively loose at the transportation management center. Ryan Harris, KOMO news. Let's talk traffic and trains.

Keep traffic moving during the highway ninety nine construction promising not to block downtown intersections for more than ten minutes at a time Gus Maloney's with the NSF tells KOMO it's also important for them to keep the freight moving products that are being used for the viaduct project. Those are being moved by rail as well. So everybody depends on these movements. But again, we're going to try to do what we can do to help with this gridlock situation because it's it's a pain for everybody. We get that.

If people were forced to commute into Seattle from outside the city. Komo's Corwin Hake. Reports up zoning has its fans and its critics Bob zoning is the practice of rezoning residential areas to allow for taller buildings proponents say this would increase housing, density, and affordability and decrease commuter traffic into the city under Seattle's zoning plans developers win the right to build higher by including affordable units in their projects. Now, though city leaders are getting pushback from neighborhoods dominated by single family homes. That means plans to zone could be limited in those areas. Absorbing may prove more popular in so-called urban villages where people are well served by transit.

"Scott from our sister station, car radio. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. So what's the situation right now as it relates to school bonds, and how might legislation change it? So the situation now is that there's a school band bonds districts across the state are having a very difficult time getting them passed. They keep failing Bethel school district. Superintendent Tom Seagal says and they desperately need them to build new schools and buildings. You can go to buffalo high school and watch the water leak into the office. And you could just watch the water cascading down into a trash can. But why school really needs major work needs to be replaced? And the other buildings are just you know, are wearing out particular that really are kind of a bad shape. Now state Senator democratic Senator Lisa Wellman says other school districts have even bigger problems at some schools that reported we've got we've got collapsing ceiling is we've got leading the water because we've got old pipes that we need to really reengineer. We need a new building. Having a collapsing ceiling is not good. As far as kids are concerned. Now Bethel's just had its bond four hundred forty three million dollar bond. I believe for fourth time was on the November ballot it failed by just barely. And it'll be coming up again in the February ballot for the fifth time and it needs to pass according to Tom eventually ran out of the ability to stuff anymore kids into the classrooms. We currently have. And there is no bond then something's going to have to give an aborted. Records will have to make a decision based on input. They're getting from new citizens group there. Starting the questions you either have, you know, those sort of crazy solutions or you finally pass a bond and build the buildings in the three years later you suddenly the new building online it takes three years. Crazy ideas. He's talking about by the way are like scattered school times. Yeah. Elementary schools going from six to seven in the evening year round school, things like that. It's interesting because have they said at all whether or not they're willing to change the way, they go about promoting the bonds during the political campaign is this whole idea of, hey, they're not working our arguments on why we should pass a school bond isn't working. So let's make it easier to pass school bonds. It seems like that's the exact opposite thing that they should be doing which is hey, maybe just argue it a little bit differently. Well, and I think that there's some confusion among voters. I think a lot of voter stuff that mccleary covered all of the school funding that was needed right? They're playing more property taxes and things like that. I don't know that people understand why they need the bonds, and there's just old buildings and safety issues across the state. Here's the biggest issue with that that why the bonds are failing to this is very frankly, these super majority requirement that was inserted into the constitution. Nineteen forty four. As a result of World War Two. Continues to this day to really cause problems throughout the entire state kids end up in school buildings that are crowded or are unhealthy insecure or potentially dangerous or some cases. So there is a push now at both state schools chief, Chris reykdal. Several lawmakers who actually had been against the idea of changing it to a simple majority in the past have now gotten on board and Lisa Lohman. She has dropped a proposal to change it to a simple majority fifty plus one right down from that sixty percent because a lot of these Bethel's, especially I think baffles failed by fifty nine point one percent. So I was like nine percentage points short. But that's. Henna? But that's an indication of what I was talking about this whole idea of if they push just a little bit harder. We're not talking about having to overcome a huge percentage. We're talking about just a few hundred or sometimes it depending on the district. A few dozen more voters in your on your side. Well, but I, but his point is that why should the not the majority? It should be like anything else at this point the majority. It should be fifty plus one is who should be here fighting it, not the minority. The minority is designing. Here's why I think it's like that. And this would be my guess, it's because I don't have kids. And if it's fifty point zero one percent of the vote means I'm going to have to pay for more of something that I will never use. It's kind of unfair. And so I think it's trying to even things out a little bit. Yeah. Not only are you going to have to get the parents on board. But because these bonds impact everybody who lives in the district, you need to work a little bit harder to get people like me who's unloved and without children, and we'll probably forever be that way. And I'm so alone. That's probably why it's like this. But okay. So then alternatively to get some upgrades and building things then you can do a capital Levy like Seattle does. And if you have the higher tax base, then you you can get those passed in that only takes a simple majority. It makes a difference. So that's another one of his arguments at any rate. There's going to be this proposal to try to change it the one that's right now on the pre filed list is from Lisa Wellman again fifty plus one that is has to be a constitutional amendment though. So in the end voters across the state if this even gets out of the legislature would need to third of the legislature to sign off on any constitutional amendment. And then it has to go to voters who would have to prove it by a simple majority. We'll see how it ends up going. That's been Hannah Scott, she's actually pretending to be at the capitol. She's actually the studio right next to me. Sided to connect this way. Because it sounds a lot cooler come on hand. I can see you in the other room. I can see the capitol where I I know she thought I was serious last night when I was giving her a hard time, and she sent me photos. Mike those look like clip art of not even of Olympia..

Minimum wage hikes don't eliminate jobs, study finds

"Latest look at a higher minimum wage suggests that it's working. But it's komo's Brian Calvert tells us not all economists are on the same positive page UC Berkeley, researchers looked at Seattle San Francisco and four other cities that have adopted a fifteen dollars minimum wage and found no widespread job losses. The most recent study also showed those working in minimum wage jobs. We're bringing home more money. This study you seem to echo another Berkeley. Study last year that just look at Seattle and both surveys, however appear to contradict university of Washington research that hours were cut and that there are fewer jobs for minimum wage workers. The difference in the studies Jacob Victor who was part of the UW research says his team looked at several industries where workers were paid minimum wage. The Berkeley research only looked at food service that accounts for thirty percent of minimum wage earners. The times reports that the U W project has been criticized for inadequately, separating the impact of minimum wage increases from the broader economic boom, which is naturally driven up wages, Victor contends that Berkeley's analysis did the same thing.
