The U.S. Supreme Court will not rule on two cases regarding freedom of expression in public schools -- meaning that lower-court decisions in each case will stand. In one case, a Tennessee school's decision to ban students from wearing T-shirts showing the Confederate flag will remain in effect. In another case, Florida schools will be able to enforce a law requiring students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance each day unless they have written parental permission to be excused.
