My House, My Rules

Strengthening Government Managers’ Control over Institutional Speech

(p.69) Chapter 3 My House, My Rules
Managed Speech

Gregory P. Magarian

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins the second part of the book, which examines the government’s heightened power to regulate speech in “government preserves.” This chapter considers the Roberts Court’s treatment of the First Amendment rights of prisoners, public school students, and government workers. The Supreme Court has long taken a very narrow view of these institutional subjects’ First Amendment rights, and the Roberts Court has weakened their rights even further. This Court has deferred almost completely to the government’s managerial authority to restrict speech in prisons, public schools, and public workplaces however it sees fit, restricting the ability of government institutional subjects to contribute their distinctive insights to public discussion.
