Yeah, it probably does. But in the fifties, I remember students at my school
didn't ever (ever) consider rebelling on the basis of infringement of first
amendment rights. We just did what we needed to do to get the grades we needed
to get to get out of school. In those days, violence happened, but not on the
school campus. Gangs and guns did their thing without disturbing book worms like
me. (Ah, the good 'ol days.)
