Wendi Lowrey, a speech pathologist in Orange County, was transferred out of her school (where her own child is a student) and reassigned because of her comments on social media. She wrote about education policies in general, not about her school or her district. She was warned to stop speaking or writing but she continued to exercise her right to speak and write outside school hours, on her own computer.


She contested the transfer, and an arbitrator ruled in her favor. Yes, Wendy does have Frst Amendment rights. So do you.
