    D is legal. The First Amendment allows government to put time, place and manner conditions on public speech in order to safeguard public safety, and obviously the safety of children at school would be a legitimate concern of government -- and it would be hard to think of a public assembly that simply MUST take place at a school. On the other hand, conditions based on the content of the speech -- such as your choices B and C -- are entirely unconstitutional. The government cannnot pick and choose which viewpoints may be allowed to be heard. A is a mystery. Obviously private citizens cannot provide their own police protection, so God knows what this answer choice means.
