Named the 9 fastest growing education company in the United States.
Tinker, 15 years old, and petitioner Christopher Eckhardt, 16 years old, attended high schools in Des Moines, Iowa. In December,a group of adults and students in Des Moines held a meeting at the Eckhardt home.
Petitioners and their parents had previously engaged in similar activities, and they decided to participate in the program. The principals of the Des Moines schools became aware of the plan to wear armbands.
On December 14,they met and adopted a policy that any student wearing an armband to school would be asked to remove it, and, if he refused, he would be suspended until he returned without the armband.
Petitioners were aware of the regulation that the school authorities adopted. On December 16, Mary Beth and Christopher wore black armbands to their schools. John Tinker wore his armband the next day.
They were all sent home and suspended from school until they would come back without their armbands. It prayed for an injunction restraining the respondent school officials and the respondent members of the board of directors of the school district from disciplining the petitioners, and it sought nominal damages.
After an evidentiary hearing, the District Court dismissed the complaint.

This has been the unmistakable holding of this Court for almost 50 years. Justice McReynolds, held that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment prevents States from forbidding the teaching of a foreign language to young students.
Statutes to this effect, the Court held, unconstitutionally interfere with the liberty of teacher, student, and parent. Society of Sisters, [p] U.
