    It's not a school-sponsored event.

    It just so happens that in the military, prayer is more acceptable because of things like soldiers dying. We are talking about a high school graduation ceremony which is sponsored by the school. IOW, there doesn't even HAVE to be a graduation ceremony at all. There is no "right" to free speech under such circumstances. The child who gave the speech most certainly IS a representative of the school, being voted as valedictorian.

    not to mention if one has to ask why the federal government and a school is different they instantly show they simply are not educated on this supbject.

    maybe quoting SCOTUS for him will just be easier.

    Main article: Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier

    The Hazelwood School District case applies the principles set forth in Fraser to curricular matters. In Hazelwood, the Supreme Court upheld a school's decision to censor certain articles in the school newspaper which was produced as part of the school's journalism curriculum. Echoing Fraser, the Supreme Court observed that "[a] school need not tolerate student speech that is inconsistent with 'its basic educational mission' ... even though the government could not censor similar speech outside the school." School authorities and educators do not offend the First Amendment by exercising editorial control over the style and content of student speech in school-sponsored expressive activities so long as their actions are reasonably related to legitimate pedagogical concerns.[7]

    You don't get voted as veledictorian. The highest grades get you that honor.

    It's kind of strange how people seem to want to let the children have all of this "free speech" in school. What a DISASTER that would be if it were actually practiced. Could you imagine? LOL!

    not only that childrens rights are already limited because they are . . . . . . . . . . . children.

    and yes it would be a disaster of a school system if it had no authority.
