Do I have the constitutional right to give my teacher the finger ?

Report as

Now why would you do that? That is the problem with the world today no respect for a person who is teaching you. If you have a grievance against a teacher, there are more civilized ways than flipping him off.

Well, it depends on what state you live in, and how creatively you can do it. If it's done just right, they won't even know you did it.

I figured out how to do a neat little finger dance where you repeatedly flick someone off, and they don't even know you did it. You have to be fast, though.

No because the school is run by government and they are then allowed to create there own rules

Not on school property. You have a right to your opinion but there are proper ways to express it. I am almost certain that giving the finger would be against the schools code of conduct.

Well you certainly won't be arrested for flipping the bird, but the schools make the rules! You're on private property.

I wouldn't bother trying, most who deserve it don't know the damage they are doing and that action won't make them realize.
It will just cement their aloofness as they savor punishing you.

It's called provocative speeches and gestures and can be illegal in some states.

You can have your middle finger up all you want unless it goes against the rules. Schools have rules.. It's ridiculous for you to think that you can do whatever you want without consequences.

You have the constitutional right of speech, which can include gestures. Inciting language and gestures are excepted http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_free_speech_exceptions and schools have certain limits on speech and other freedoms, as the court has found that certain rights are not without limitation.
For example, schools may have a dress code, a Conduct code, and other limits on freedoms.
