NIC Mulls ‘Free Speech Zone’

Members of North Idaho College's board of trustees are considering creating a "free speech zone" at the school's campus, limiting potentially disruptive picketing, leafleting and other free speech activities to the designated zone. NIC Vice President for Student Services Sheldon Nord says that if approved, the policy would place limits on the time, place and manner of free speech activities. He says similar restrictions have been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court/Associated Press. More here.

Question: What do you make of the proposed "free speech zone" at North Idaho College?
