A judge ruled Tuesday that several Jackson Public Schools staff policies are unconstitutional and restrict educators’ freedom of speech

Special Judge Jess Dickinson ordered permanent injunctions to stop the district from enforcing parts of the policies and carrying out several actions, including telling staff not to contact parents, the public, the media, law enforcement or anyone else about issues in the schools.

“By silencing its teachers, staff, employees and their organizational advocate, JPS deprives its students, their parents and other interested parties such as legislators and taxpayers, of important information necessary to fully understand and take part in their public education system, and meaningfully call for its improvement where and when needed,” Dickinson wrote.
