Can a public school COMPEL students to salute the flag?



The 1st Amendment

West Virginia v. Barnette (1943)

Did the compulsory flag-salute for public schoolchildren violate the First Amendment??

“To sustain the compulsory flag salute, we are required to say that a Bill of Rights which guards the individual’s right to speak his own mind left it open to public authorities to compel him to utter what is not in his mind.” ~ Justice Robert Jackson
