Freedom Of Expression In School

Recommended Posts

I agree with Noah. So what if nobody cares? He cares, and its pretty rediculous for the school board to deny him the right to wear that shrit. Given, he's a minor and the rules are different when you are a minor, but that shirt was not offensive. I understand that the issue was a stupid thing to fight over, but that was his right as a citizen.

Yah thats exactly how our administration is. They have their own opinions and thoughts which they implement as if they were law, then they make up obscene arguements to back up their opinions. Its pretty stupid, but in our school you learn pretty quick just to give up....i mean jesus, i just finished a 9 day term of ISS for playing games at the end of a computer class same as everyone else just because the teacher disliked me. Bending rules and words seems to be an imparative for the duches, know as the administration, who want to maintain the illusion of power they constantly have about themselves.

How is getting suspended going to keep someone out of college? I was suspended once and had zero issues being accepted to many great schools.

That will get em going.

I commend you for your actions, the one thing I regret about high school is not messing with the school administration and their stupid and idiotic rules enough, I realise now how pathetic and close minded they are, and they really can't do much to you, youll still get into college, I assure you, if you like constitutional stuff, try sitting down during the pledge of allegiance, then getting the ACLU involved if they make u stand or send u to the office, it will make for some good times.

i did alot worse things in highschool "i mean like seriously worse", and they never affected my post secondary education acceptance, it never even came up.

First big mistake was getting the teacher to make the shirts, second was giving them the shirts you had on, 3rd was the fact you pooled all the money together and accepted the liabilty of having to deliver the shirts, you should have taken orders off school property "not mention this on school property/make any arrangements" and done shirt for cash at same time.

these steps would have prevented any sort of trouble you would have had. Why expose yourself before hand to your plans up until the last second.

perfect example is like a kegger in relation to this. you get someone who basically works for the cops to supply the beer, then you accept entrance fee 2 weeks in advance for the kegger and pay the guy who works for the cops the money, then you advertise all around town that your having the kegger so the cops know ahead of time whats going on so they can bust all over your little parade.

the way it went was that we werent trying to piss off the school... at first we wanted our own class tshirts to wear on that day and approached a teacher that had made tshirts for my band...they turned out very well and hes nice to deal with (not to mention cheap)

that is why we used him

we then took orders from kids that wanted the tshirts because we thought that there were other kids that didnt like the class tshirts that could be a part of it

everyone liked them so much we had somewhere over 80 orders (which is probably like a little over a quarter of my class or about a quarter) even our class officers had orders in

someone tipped off one of the teachers and the next day they said we couldnt wear them.....and from there is all written above

thats what happened and its over now...i met with the principle to let him know why we did it and that we werent merely trying to piss them off but believed it was our right to have and taht it did not interfere with the schooling process
