A group of young conservatives has secured their right to free speech after standing up to the administration at their Minnesota high school.
The Young Conservatives Club at Edina High sued the school last November after school officials disbanded the club for criticizing Antifa students who disrespected the flag and the military during Veterans Day. Attorney Erick Kaardal of Mohrman, Kaardal & Erickson, P.A. says the school board has changed its policy to settle the lawsuit.
"And when the school board basically offered the olive branch to the Young Conservatives Club, that 'we'll settle, and we'll change our policies so you can feel free as a school-sponsored or non-school sponsored club to criticize school policies without punishment,' then we knew we had a deal," Kaardal tells OneNewsNow.
Kaardal's firm's position was that no school's leftist ideology or political correctness is above the First Amendment.
"I think the important thing about the victory is that the Young Conservatives Club has been reinstated as a school-sponsored club," the attorney comments. "So they can use classrooms again, and they can fundraise while criticizing disrespect for the U.S. flag and criticizing flag protestors."
The club achieved all of their goals, including the placement of U.S. flags in all classrooms, according to the Zephyrus, the official news site of Edina High School.
