The authors of this blog are seniors at Monona Grove High School (currently, the graduating Class of 2017).  In their U.S. Government course, they explore the boundaries of the 1st Amendment.  Working with a given issue related to First Amendment rights, they focus their research on an essential question that they have developed. This research is presented in their posts and comments on this blog.  Our blog is public, so please feel free to engage our students in thoughtful discourse on these topics.  All comments will be moderated to ensure a civil discussion.
