A recent graduate of Pembroke Pines Charter High filed a lawsuit against the school’s principal for allegedly violating her First Amendment rights, after she was suspended for posting negative comments on the Internet about a teacher…
…Two days after posting the information, Evans [the student] took it down on her own free will.
The student was not only suspended, but also removed from AP classes! I’m against AP courses, but was taught day one of ed school that you never punish a student with education or the withholding of education. What the hell is wrong with us?
