Central Washington University Journalism Professor Cynthia Mitchell weighed in today on Ellensburg High School's ban on decorating graduation caps in a column in the Daily Record newspaper.
Mitchell says the EHS cap ban "violates the students’ right to free expression. And if the students were to take this to court, they’d easily win."
Mitchell, who advises the award-winning student newspaper, The Observer, organizes the university's annual weeklong First Amendment Festival. Her service and research passions revolve around the First Amendment.
