A fifth-grade teacher, in an effort to motivate his students, allows them to go out and play on the playground for designated periods of time as rewards for turning in their homework on time. Students who don't turn in their homework on time are required to serve detention after school. The principal warns the teacher three times that this practice is unacceptable, but the teacher protests each time that the students' motivation has increased significantly as a result of this practice. The teacher is dismissed, but then sues, arguing that his academic freedom has been violated. If this case is consistent with other cases involving academic freedom and freedom of speech, which of the following is the most likely outcome?
A) The district's dismissal will be upheld in court, since the teacher used unconventional methods, and the teacher was warned three times.
B) The district's dismissal will be overturned in court, since playing on the playground is part of children's typical school activities.
C) The district's dismissal will be overturned in court, since the students' motivation has increased.
D) The district's dismissal will be overturned in court, because the teacher used both rewards (letting the students play) and punishers (keeping students after school) as part of his methods.
