U.S. Court of Appeals’ Free Speech Ruling Says School District Cannot Stop Teacher from Wearing MAGA Hat

The 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled that a Washington State school system violated a teacher’s free speech by forcing a teacher to remove his MAGA hat during school training sessions.

In the case Dodge v. Evergreen School District, Middle school teacher Eric Dodge says that in 2019 his bosses told him he was not allowed to war his red hat made famous by President Donald Trump. Dodge said that principal Caroline Garrett threatened disciplinary actions if he did not stop wearing the hat.
