Via Rhymes with Right, comes an intriguing dilemma facing the courts. And because I am not well read on legal matters, I will avoid, mainly, the issue of free speech on the internet. The issue that stood out to me was the foolishness of the administration.
So a student calls the central office administrators a "douche bag" on her personal blog. She wrote this at her home and not at school. I find it astounding that an administrator would react in such a petulant manner as to have the girl barred from student council and other idiotic punishments.
This moron, Principal Karissa Niehoff, has gone ahead and continued to propigate the image of teachers as waiting and ready to retaliate should a student say something bad about us. I wish insecure imbeciles like Niehoff would get out of education because they are not up to the task of teaching students.
So, Principal "DoucheBag," and we all know that WILL be your new name around school, take the correct action and apologize. It would do wonders for your image and ours collectively as well.
