HONOLULU -- (KRON) -- The University of Hawaii didn’t violate First Amendment rights when it denied a teaching certificate for a Caltech-educated aspiring high school teacher who expressed views condoning adults having sex with minors, a panel of federal appeals court judges ruled Tuesday.

Mark Oyama earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the California Institute of Technology and a master’s degree in physics from the University of Hawaii. In 2010, he enrolled in the secondary education certification program at the University of Hawaii’s Manoa campus, which is the state’s only nationally accredited institution that recommends students for certification as secondary school teachers.
